Willi the Univer- 
sity of Maryland 
c a in p us in the 
background, it is 
intended to stress 
the close connection between the State 
of Maryland and the early history of 
our country as well as the state's associ- 
ation with the National Ensign. 

From time to time reference is made 
to the University's great expansion un- 
der the able pilotage of President 11. ('. 
Byrd, upward and onward to various 
levels at which it meets or exceeds the 
progress and development of other in- 
stitutions of learning in other states 
of the Union. 

However, one of the University's 
proudest traditions lies in a premise 





which the University has occupied from 
the time of the school's inception. That 
is that the University is the Land 
Grant College of one of the Thirteen 
Original States. 

When the flag of the United States 
was adopted on June 14, 1777 the flag 
of Maryland was already there and had 
been for many years. 

Four Marylanders. Charles Carroll 
of Carrollton, Samuel Chase, William 
Paca and Charles Stone were signa- 
tories of the Declaration of Indepen- 
dence as well as members of the Con- 
tinental Congress.

Such facts of early Americana, link- 
ed with heritage from the original 
British colony, are reflected in the de- 
sign and heraldry of the Maryland 
State flag. 

A few years ago the first casting of 
the Iwo Jima monument stood on Con- 
stitution Avenue in Washington, D. C, 
surrounded by the flags of all the 
States of the Union. The one flag that 
stood out, vastly different in design than 
any of the others, was the flag of 
Maryland. Its design reflected the fact 
that it antedated the other state col- 
ors to a time back into the early his- 
tory of England when flags, shields, 
arms and seals were the result of 
meaningful heraldry by which English- 
men of those early times set much 

Maryland's flag became the flag of 
Maryland on June 20, 1632 when 
Charles the First signed the charter 
authorizing the establishment of the 
colony under Caecilius Calvert, Baron 
of Baltimore, son and heir of George 

Maryland's flag bears the arms of 
the Calvert and Crossland families, 
Calvert being the family name of the 


Maryland's flag dates back to June 20. 1632. 
when King Charles the First, pictured above 
from a painting by Professor Maurice Siegler. 
of the University's Art Department, signed the 
Charter establishing the colony under Caecilius 
Calvert. Raron of Baltimore. 

Lords Baltimore, founders of Maryland. 
Crossland was the family name of the 
mother of the first Lord Baltimore. 

Maryland's seal is the oldest state 
seal in America. 

Marylanders are sometimes referred 
to as "Old Liners". That apellation 
dates back to the Battle of Long Island. 
Haulpressed colonial troops were ord- 
ered to fall back and establish a new 
line, of which the contingent flying 
Maryland's colors held the center. 
They did not fall back. A staff officer 
exclaimed, "See, the OLD LINE holds!" 
Other troops rallied and advanced to 
the Maryland-held line. Thereafter 
troops from other states referred to 
the Marylanders as "Old Liners." 

When citizens of other states point 
with justifiable pride to various fine 
sotigs written in honor of their respec- 


tive states, Marylanders can again, 
with considerable dignity, mention a 
song that reflects for all the nation and 
all the world the high ideals of our 
great country, written by a Marylander 
who lies buried at Frederick, Mary- 
land. We refer, of course, to the "Star 
Spangled Banner," written by Francis 
Scott Key who was inspired by the 
sight of the flag over Fort McHenry, 
Baltimore harbor, "by the rockets red 
glare" and "on the shore dimly seen 
through the mists of the deep." 

The National Ensign is allowed to 
remain at full staff, day and night 
over the Capitol of the United States 
and over the grave of the author of the 
national anthem. 

The flag itself, the one which in- 
spired Francis Scott Key, was the 
handiwork of Mary Young Pickersgill, 
a Maryland widow, and her 14 year old 
daughter Caroline. 

At the joint request of General John 
Strieker and Commodore Joshua Bar- 
ney, Mrs. Pickersgill and Caroline, 
layed out and sewed the 29 x 26 foot 
flag on the floor of the malthouse of 
Clagett's Brewery in Baltimore. 

It was not until 1933 that the "Star 
Spangled Banner" was made the "offi- 
cial" national anthem by Act of Con- 
gress and that also was accomplished 
largely through the efforts of Maryland 
people. The bill to achieve this pur- 
pose was sponsored by the Veterans of 
Foreign Wars with the final efforts in 
the hands of Mrs. Clay Keene Miller, 
wife of a member of the University of 
Maryland faculty, aided and guided by 
Senator Millard S. Tydings of Mary- 
land and the late Representative Ste- 
phen W. Gambrill, also of Maryland. 

Strangely enough there was strong 
opposition to the bill. Some thought the 
words were too militant. Others con- 
sidered the music too difficult. Propo- 
nents of the bill were thinking of Fort 
McHenry, Francis Scott Key and the 
historic situation which inspired the 

The history of the University of 
Maryland began before "The Star 
Spangled Banner" flew over Fort Mc- 
Henry. When the College of Medicine 
of Maryland, as the University was 
first known, was established in 1807 in 
Baltimore it was the fifth medical 
school in the United States. 

In 1856, a group of Maryland people 
prevailed upon the General Assembly 
of Maryland "to establish and endow 
an agricultural college in the State of 
Maryland." Thus the second institu- 
tion, first called the Maryland Agricul- 
tural College, came into being at Col- 
lege Park. 

In 1862, the Congress of the United 
States passed the Land Grant Act and, 
by action of the Legislature, the Mary- 
land Agricultural College became the 
Land Grant College of Maryland. In 
1916, the Maryland Agricultural Col- 
lege became the Maryland State Col- 
lege, and in 1920, the property of the 
old University of Maryland of Balti- 
more was given to the Maryland State 
College, and the two institutions be- 
came the present University of Mary-

The high degree of public confidence 
find respect that the University enjoys 
in every section of the State is a trib- 
ute to its record of performance in 
meeting the needs of the people of 
Maryland and in keeping with the 
proud traditions of the State. 

It is significant and quite proper 
that Maryland's proud heritage of par- 
ticipation in the making of the earliest 
American history is reflected in the 
very comprehensive program of Amer- 
ican Civilization. The University feels 
that it is vital for every student to thor- 
oughly understand this country. Hence, 
work in American Civilization is of- 
fered at three distinct academic levels, 
the first of which is required of all 
freshmen or sophomores. The second 
level is for undergraduates desiring to 
carry a major in this field and the 
third level is for students desiring to 
do graduate work in American Civili- 

In these days when we have an 
American born college graduate con- 
victed of treason and espionage against 
the land that gave her birth and when 
we have British nobility going on rec- 
ord in our public prints with "America 
should never have won her freedom 
from England. ... If that historical 
mistake had not occurred we would not 
now be worried with Marshall plans, 
international cooperation and similar 
problems," it is a source of pride to 
Maryland alumni that their university 
places great importance upon the his- 
tory of American Civilization with its 
Nathan Hales and Ethan Aliens. 

Theodore Roosevelt, who would very 
likely be labeled "isolationist" these 
days, used to urge "A League of Amer- 
icans" and, "there is room only for 
one 'ism' in this country; that is Amer- 
icanism." A lot of people still sort of 
like that "ism" very much indeed. 


We see by "the" paper that Dr. H. C. 
Byrd has been instrumental in having 
another stadium named after him- 
self. "The" paper, which spouts anti- 
Byrd propaganda like a Yellowstone 
geyser spouts steam, paints a clear 
picture of inference that the Sta- 
dium was named after Dr. Byrd, at Dr. 
Byrd's direction. 

Following the same line of reasoning 
. — or lack of it — "the" paper, expert at 
acerbity and Billingsgate below the 
level of a fishwife, wherever and when- 
ever Dr. Byrd is concerned, may also 
be expected to adduce that this column 
reflects Dr. Byrd's wishes or instruc- 

All who have ever attended the 
University know that the production 
of journalistic "trained seals," a species 
not uncommon on the staffs of news- 
papers requiring writers to write as 
directed in accordance with the paper's 
policy, are neither developed nor en- 
couraged at Maryland. Not once, since 
"MARYLAND" was established, has 
Dr. Byrd or anyone else in authority 
at the University censored or dictated 
a single line printed in this magazine.

University of Maryland Marks 
Its Birthday on EC Campuses 
from Burtonwood to Munich 

By Albert S. Burchard 

Staff Writer. "The Stars and Stripes" 

■ HE UNIVERSITY of Maryland 
has completed its first year of ex- 
pansion abroad. Its campus was en- 
larged from College Park to take care 
of about 500 students that the Army 
and Air Force in Europe figured want- 
ed to take college work. But instead of 
500, the day registration started a year 
ago, there were 1,800 applicants, and in 
the five semesters since then, aggregate 
enrollment has reached about 10,000. 

What started out as a small if im- 
portant project, with six centers scat- 
tered around the European Command, 
has now mushroomed into big business 
with its own administrative offices in 
Heidelberg, 20 full-scale centers and 
nine language-only centers scattered 
from Burtonwood, England, to Munich, 
and plans are in the works for nine 
more centers reaching all the way to 
Trieste and Tripoli. 

Opportunity Knocks 

Working in close collaboration with 
the Armed Forces Information and 
Education Division, EUCOM, the Uni- 
versity of Maryland took up where 
regular I&E courses left off, so that it 
became theoretically possible for a per- 
son with no education to work all the 
way up to a college degree and never 
leave his military post. 

The I&E, under Col. H. C. Fellows, 
is set up to give on-duty instruction 
through the eighth grade, and off-duty 
courses through high school. But there 
were many officers and men who had 
not finished college. 

Under the Air Force's "Operation

Bootstrap" and similar Army regula- 
tions, educational requirements in both 
services were stepped up, so that the 
normal demand for more education 
suddenly became vital. This is where 
Maryland came in. 

"A Great Need" 

The University had been teaching 
certain courses at the Pentagon since 
1946 in answer, as University Presi- 
dent Dr. H. C. Byrd put it, to "the 
great need . . . among members of the 
Aimed Forces for educational oppor- 
tunity." It was a long hop across the 
Atlantic, but the University's College 
of Special and Continuation Studies 
made it. 

Operating under a directive by Lt. 
Gen. Clarence R. Huebner, then Com- 


manding General, U. S. Army, Europe. 
the University sent over enough books 
and supplies — and professors — to take 
care of an expected 500 enrollment 
When 1,800 prospective students lie- 
sieged the six original centers, the Uni- 
versity managed to spread itself thin 
enough to get them all in, but the need 
for expansion was more than evident 

Dr. Ehrensberjrer 

Dr. Ray Ehrensberger, bead of the 

Speech Department at College Park. 

was given six months' leave of absence 

to square away the European branch. 
He returned to College Park in Sep- 
tember and was succeeded as Director 
of the European Program by D 
Zucker, head of the Language Depart- 
ment at College Park. 

The European Director is responsible 
to Dr. Joseph M. Ray, Dean of the Col- 
lege of Special and Continuation 
Studies, at College Park. Dean Ray 
visited in Europe in September and Oc- 
tober to inspect the program. 

At first there was little but prob- 
lems. There weren't enough teacheis, 
enough books, enough time, enough 
people to take care of necessary rec- 
ords, enough of much of anything but 
students, spread out from Burtomvood 

Teacheis were brought in from the 
States. That brought up the new prob- 
lem of housing. Thus far, the teachers 
have not been able to bring their fami- 
lies along, but a remedy for that situ- 
ation is in sight. 

Books were obtained and distributed 
through "The Stars and Stripes." That 
licked the book problem. 

In Heidelberg 

An administrative center was set up 
in Heidelberg to act as a clearing 
house for records from all the local 
centers. A registrar's office was set up, 
schedules and curricula outlined, and 
the whole works put in a room big 
enough for plenty of file cabinets. 

The distance between students was 
gradually overcome by sending the pro- 
fessors wherever groups of students 
were located. Thus Berlin, Ansbach, 
Bad Nauheim, Burtonwood, Darmstadt, 
Erding, Frankfurt, Furstenfeldbruck, 
Hanau, Heidelberg, Herzo, Karlsruhe, 
Landerberg, London, Mannheim, Mun- 
ich, Neubiberg, Nurnberg, Rhine-Main 
Air Base and Wiesbaden, have full- 
scale centers. Nine more centers — at 
Augsburg, Bremerhaven, Fritzlar, Gar- 
misch, Kitzingen, Rothwesten, Stutt- 
gart, Wetzlar-Giessen and Wurzburg 
teach only languages. 

Two centers, at Tripoli and Trieste, 
are beginning in October, and three 
more, at Linz, Salzburg and Vienna, 
may be set up eventually. 

The University of Maryland's Euro- 
pean program is primarily aimed at 
military students, although it is also 
open to HICOG employes. 

Student Problems 

There were other early problems 
connected with students themselves. 
Professors, used to facing youngsters 
who would accept the teacher's word on 
anything, and who had to be made to 
study, suddenly found themselves con- 
fronted with a mature bunch of stu- 
dents who might all have been from 

The age group, averaging from 20 
to about 35, was at least five years 
older than the average at home, and 
all the students were dead serious 
about their work. Most were married. 
All knew what they wanted. The pro- 
fessors had to stay right on their toes. 

Paradoxically, absences were a prob- 
lem. TDY, maneuvers, duty tours, all 
took students from the classrooms. 
But, generally, work was made up, and 
grades on the EC "campus" average 
considerably higher than in the States. 

The degree offered by the University 

is a bachelor of science in military 

nee and tactics. But the really re- 

markable thing is that they can offer 
a degree at all. 

An innovation is the ruling which al- 
lows students to earn credits by tak- 
ing GED (general educational develop- 
ment) tests. With these tests and the 
credits given in military science and 
tactics for professional work done, it 
is possible to start college with 24 sem- 
ester hours' credit. 

From then on, though, the work isn't 
so easy. English, sociology, speech, 
mathematics, history, and a language 
are required. 

Other requirements include the study 
of gas engines, engineering drawing 
and surveying, military logistics, mili- 
tary leadership, military policy of the 
U.S., and political science. In the 
junior and senior years, a minor se- 
quence is elected. It may include psy- 
chology, more English, business ad- 
ministration courses and geography. 

Maximum Enrollment 

Maximum enrollment for the year 
came during the fourth semester, which 
ended in July. Enrollment in the fifth 
semester dropped off some, but this drop 
may be attributed to summer leaves, 
maneuvers and the Korean conflict. 

The College of Special and Continua- 
tion Studies, under which the European 
program operates, wishes to emphasize 
the cooperation and assistance given the 
University by I&E officers and advis- 
ers. At the centers, the I&E officials 
help students pick courses and then do 
the actual registering, including VA 
forms. These are forwarded to the 
administrative center at Heidelberg for 

Although the university's directive 
in the EC was signed by Huebner, 
many others gave assistance. Gener- 
ous support was accorded the program 
by Gen. Thomas T. Handy, EUCOM 
commander, as well as Lt. Gen. John 
K. Cannon, USAFE CG. 

The university's program was set up 
under Col. Otis McCormick, at that 
time chief of the Armed Forces I&E 
Division, EUCOM, and the university 
appreciates his cooperation, as well as 
that of Maj. George Cornish and Eg- 
bert Hunter, of the I&E division. 

Colonel Bentley 

Some 40 per cent of the Maryland 
students are from USAFE, and much 
of the accomplishment here may be 
credited to Col. William A. Bentley, 
deputy chief of personnel, USAFE, as 
the university's "spark plug for the 
Air Force." Maj. W. C. Dorn, USAFE 
I&E chief, and A. D. Robertson, civi- 
lian adviser, also have pushed the pro- 

The University considers this pro- 
gram only a beginning of educational 
opportunities which will develop in 
conjunction with the Armed Forces. 
Other universities are now teaching on 
military reservations from Japan (Uni- 
versity of California) across the Pa- 
cific islands (University of Hawaii) to 
Alaska (University of Alaska) and 
even in the U. S., where the Universi- 
ties of Illinois and Florida have started 
courses at nearby camps. 


Men who are located in the EC, how- 
ever, where the University of Mary- 
land is covering the field, have little to 
worry about. University President 
Byrd, in an open letter to the Armed 
Forces, said: 

"The University of Maryland wel- 
comes the opportunity thus to sei-ve 
members of the Armed Forces, and will 
expand its activities to meet such de- 
mands as may arise." 


An advisory committee representing 
potential employers of University of 
Maryland graduates was formed on 
Wednesday, September 13, 1950, in the 
Administration Building. The purpose 
of the committee is to keep the direc- 
tor of the new Placement Service of 
the University of Maryland in touch 
with the needs and attitudes of em- 
ployers in this region and to help the 
director extended the Placement Ser- 
vice through broader contacts. 

Jesse J. Krajovic, A&S, '32, and 
tackle on the "All Byrd" Maryland 
football team, was elected chairman of 
the committee. Mr. Krajovic is Assis- 
tant Employment Manager of the 
Glenn L. Martin Company of Middle 

Other members attending the meet- 
ing were Milton S. Cole, A&S, '42, 
Personnel Manager of the Union Trust 
Company of Baltimore; William H. Fi- 
fer, Engineering, '30, Electrical Branch, 
Bureau of Ships, U. S. Navy Depart- 
ment, Washington; Walter G. Harris, 
A&S, '30, Swift & Company, Washing- 
ton; Carrol S. James, Engineering, '30, 
System Operator, Potomac - Edison 
Company, Hagerstown; Weston P. 
Figgins, Wesleyan University, '39, Per- 
sonnel Relations Manager, Woodward 
& Lothrop, Washington. Dean Geary 
Eppley attended the meeting in his 
capacity as Director of Student Wel- 

Members unable to attend were John 
R. Weld, Education, '36, Personnel 
Manager, Lord Baltimore Press, Bal- 
timore; H. R. Aldridge, Engineering, 
'25, Owner and Manager, Maryland 
Mould and Foundry, Mt. Savage; and 
Fred Z. Hetzel, A&S, '30, Director of 
U. S. Employment Service for Wash- 
ington, D. C. 

Three other committees will assist 
the Placement Director this year. The 
Senior Class Committee on Placement 
will continue on an enlarged basis. A 
Committee of Young Alumni will ad- 
vise the director on the problems of 
graduates in securing and making good 
on their first job. A Faculty Advisory 
Committee will help coordinate the 
work of the Placement Office and the 
various academic departments. 

In reviewing for the committee the 
first year of full time Placement Ser- 
vice at Maryland, Lewis M. Knebel, 
Director, outlined the major accom- 
plishments of the Service in its first 
year. These included a series of voca- 
tional forums in all major fields of 
endeavor, setting up a system of regis- 
tration or referral for students seek- 
ing placement assistance, a better ser- 
vice to a larger number of company 
representatives coming on campus for 

interviews, a cooperative placement re- 
lationship with all colleges and depart- 
ments, and an advisory service avail- 
able to all students. Six hundred and 

fifty Seniors registered for Placement 

Assistance this year. 

A great many helpful recommenda- 
tions were made to the director by the 
Committee. It was the general feeling 
of the committee that in view of the 
smaller 1951 class and the Korean 
situation, employers would again he 
competing for graduates. This gives 
Maryland a chance to get on the visit- 
ing list of many companies that have 
not previously sought our graduates. 
A good service to company representa- 
tives will insure their annual return. 

The need for more vocational infor- 
mation being brought to Sophomores

Under the supervision of Dean of 
Men Geary F. Eppley, Director of Stu- 
dent Activities, the 1950 Orientation 
Week program was extended beyond 
the activities of previous years. 

The week concluded with President 
Byrd's reception for incoming students 
on Friday evening. 
Student assembly, 
a new feature, 
opened the pro- 
gram, followed by 
separate meetings 
in each of the nine

Men has worked with the orientation 
week committee of students and 

"Not since way before the war when 
we knew every student by his first 
name have we been so well prepared to 
introduce each new student to the 
campus, the faculty, the activities, and 
the other students at College Park." 

Orientation Week was established 
for the purpose of aiding new students 
to adjust themselves to their new en- 
vironment and to afford an opportunity 
of securing information needed for 
guidance purposes. Programs are in- 
tended to include all phases of college 
life, the scholastic, administrative and 
non-academic work, and to give an 
understanding of their relation and 
their proper proportions in education.

The University of Maryland is well and favorably known in Europe 
and "MARYLAND" cigarettes are popular. 

By Peter P. Lejins 

Professor of Boctolog] 

UNLESS it is outdone by some 
performance of even greater 
scope, the summer of 1950 will go down 
in history as the record-breaking spell 
of international congresses in Europe. 
Apparently many learned societies of 
international character recuperated 
just about now from the shock of 
World War II and managed to organize 
their first get-togethers on a large 
.lo. The United 

P Nations and 
TXESCO contribute 
\_ ed a great deal by 
financing some of 
the old organizations 
and being instru- 
> mental in starting a 
i few new ones. The 
Jjl^v- m± Holy year undoubt- 
^^^ ^fl I edly also contribu- 

fll ^H [ ted its share. 

Since Americans 
Prof. Lejtau evidently have more 

money for travel and the dollar gets 
you further abroad than any foreign 
currency would in the United States, 
with very few exceptions these con- 
gresses convened in Europe. The Amer- 
ican delegates did the travelling. Even 
the element of uncertainty brought on 
by the Korean situation did not appreci- 
ably cut down on this "conventioneer- 

Three Congresses 

I took time out between the end of 
the summer session and fall registra- 
tion and managed to take in three con- 
gresses which were the most important 
for me from a professional standpoint. 
It' you fly, Europe is not far away. My 
first congress was in The Hague. A 
Dutch-operated Constellation got me to 
Amsterdam in 14 V2 hours, 13 hours 
actual flying time. Before I say any- 
thing about the congresses, I would 
like to tell all Marylanders about one 
of my first discoveries upon landing in 
Europe: I was amazed at the extent 
to which the State of Maryland is 
known there! Some might remark at 
this point that that is no cause for 
amazement. Apparently the activities 
of the "University of Maryland in Eu- 
rope," both the very extensive educa- 
tional program for GI's in Germany 
and other occupied areas, and the 
iduate year abroad," with head- 
quarters in Switzerland and Paris, have 
caught the eye of European academic 

Perhaps Maryland's proximity to 
\\ ;i hington, the present "Capital of 
the World," has something to do with 
it. However that may lie it is a fact 
that in academic and professional cir- 

cles I hardly ever had to explain what 
and where Maryland is. Another im- 
portant source of publicity is Maryland 
tobacco. Not being a smoker myself 
and not having had time to look more 
closely into the matter, I do not quite 
understand the mechanics of the thing, 
but I can report as a fact that a vast 
portion of European cigarettes are 
marked "Maryland." I don't know the 
exact meaning of this: whether it is a 
type of cigarette or actually Maryland 
tobacco, but whatever the reason, 
whether you buy cigarettes in Holland, 
France, Germany, Switzerland or Bel- 
gium, you run a good chance of get- 
ting a pack with "Maryland" broadly 
printed upon it. 

At The Hague 

I was one of the members of the 
American delegation to the 12th Inter- 
national Penal and Penitentiary Con- 
gress in The Hague. There were sev- 
eral other representatives of Maryland 
among the delegates. The chairman of 
the delegation, James F. Bennett, Di- 
rector of the U. S. Bureau of Prisons, 
has been living in Maryland for some 
15 years. Most of the Maryland alum- 
ni will know or have heard of Joseph 
W. Sanford, former Warden of Atlanta, 
who represented the Air Force. Mr. 
Reuben Oppenheimer, Chairman of the 
Maryland Board of Correction, and Mr. 
Edward M. Gerlach of the U. S. Bureau 
of Prisons were also in the delegation. 

The Dutch organized an extremely 
smooth and well-ordered congress. 
Many of the delegates commented that 
it was the best organized congress they 
ever attended. In general there was 
agreement among the Americans that 
Holland is more like "home" than any 
other country in Europe, and every- 
body seemed satisfied and pleased. The 
congress dealt with the problems of 
penal and correctional treatment of 
criminals and delinquents. It repre- 
sents a fine tradition of international 
cooperation in the field of penology. 
dating from 1872. Incidentally, an 
American, Enoch C. Wines, started the 
movement. From now on the United. 
Nations will have the responsibility for 
continuing the work. 

To Switzerland 
From The Hague several of us went 
on to Zurich, Switzerland for the First 
W r orld Congress of Sociology. On the 
way I had a chance to visit the Heidel- 
berg headquarters of our GI program 
in Europe, with Dr. A. Zucker now in 
charge. It was fun to meet a number 
of colleagues from the campus and to 
feel for at least a couple of days that I 
was back in College Park. The so- 
called new building of the world- 
famous University of Heidelberg is 
marked in big letters: "Troop Informa- 

tion and Education," and under it: 
"The University of Maryland." I shall 
not comment on the program itself, 
since Dr. Ray Ehrensberger, who also 
returned from Europe very recently, 
has extensively spoken and written 
about it and the editor advises that 
there is an article on that subject else- 
where in these pages. Some remarks 
about Germany itself, however, might 
be in order. 

A Better Nation 

Unquestionably one of the most 
forceful impressions I carried away 
from Europe was the sight of a de- 
stroyed and prostrate Germany. I had 
the chance to visit and travel in Ger- 
many in 1934, 1937, 1938, 1939 and 
again in 1940, and the contrast is truly 
unbelievable. As to the destruction, I 
had heard the familiar stories, I had 
read the descriptions, and I had seen 
pictures and films as all of us did. Yet 
the reality is ever so much more im- 
pressive and shocking. We do not 
know what future wars have in store 
for us, but as far as the present is 
concerned, seeing a destroyed Cologne 
and Hamburg in ruins means partici- 
pating in one of the most significant 
experiences of the 20th century. 

But to come back to the congresses: 
the language probem was of course, of 
paramount importance. The Hague 
and Zurich handled it by consecutive, 
and Paris by simultaneous interpreta- 
tion. For the uninitiate: consecutive in- 
terpretation means that each paper, 
each speech, each remark is translated 
into the other official languages of the 
congress right after it has been given 
or made. That cuts the working time 
in two or three, depending on the num- 
ber of official languages, and then there 
is, of course, that endless and tedious 
process of sitting while the interpreta- 
tions are being made and listening 
either to a language which you do not 
understand, or, if you do speak several 
languages, to one and the same thing 
over and over again, each time in a 
different language. In the case of 
simultaneous interpretation you have 
earphones and if a paper is read in a 
language which you do not understand 
you can switch on the language of 
your preference. 

Too Many Languages 

While the speaker reads the paper, 
several linguistic geniuses give it to 
you concurrently in a variety of lan- 
guages. Unfortunately both types of 
interpretation are not perfect. As soon 
as technical issues are involved, the in- 
terpreters begin to stumble over the 
finer points of precise terminology; 
there is no time to consult dictionaries 
— it really takes not only an accom- 
plished linguist but also an expert in 
the field to give a translation that 
could serve as a basis for true scientific 
discussion. This way half or more of 
the time is spent in clearing up mis- 
understandings. The ideal thing would 
be to have every delegate speak only 
one and the same language, or to go 
to the other extreme and have each 
one able to follow and converse in each 


of the official languages. In the mean 
time, however, the interpreters carry 

However, the language is not the 
major trouble: it is the fact that each 
country seems to have its own way of 
thinking and its own way of doing 
things, at least in the social sciences 
and social matters and even if the cor- 
responding foreign words are substi- 
tuted, the meaning is not the same. 
Moreover, the lack of knowedge of 
what is really going on in the other 
countries, both scientifically and other- 
wise, is truly fantastic. My firm im- 
pression from all three congresses was 
that at least in the social sciences very 
little true scientific progress can at 
present be accomplished in this way; 
now it is largely a grandiose sort of 
seminar for educating the scholars in 
the ways of thinking of their foreign 
colleagues and showing them what is 
going on elsewhere. And yet, even if 
only for this purpose, international 
congresses are all-important. 
In Paris 

The Zurich congress, strongly under 
the aegis of all-powerful American so- 
ciology, established the International 
Sociological Society. In Paris, at the 
2nd International Congress of Crimi- 
nology, likewise a field which is a forte 
of the United States, American partici- 
pation was for some reason, less active. 
The Latin-Americans, Brazil alone had 
something between 50 and 100 persons 
in attendance, and the Romance-lan- 
guage countries of the Continent, espe- 
cially France and Italy, were very 
much in evidence. 

War? ? 

War? — The European intelligentsia 
and sections of the middle class, the 
groups you are most likely to contact 
on a trip like this seem deathly afraid 
of a Soviet invasion. No terms are too 
strong to express this fear. As for 
the working class — we did not get 
enough first-hand information to jus- 
tify any statement. To me, personally, 
Switzerland seemed the most ready and 
willing to fight for its freedom. Per- 
haps the geography has something to 
do with this. Countries with less of a 
natural barrier don't appear to have 
made up their minds to really fight — 
perhaps they are skeptical about their 
ability to do anything. Germany is 
disorganized to such an extent and so 
little allowed to think and act on her 
own that nothing definite in the way of 
public opinion has jelled as yet. In 
general there does not appear to be in 
Europe too much unity of values or 
real willingness to cooperate with each 
other. I would venture to say, how- 
ever, that a strong stand — clear-cut 
and consistent — and determined lead- 
ership should rally the majority to ac- 
tion on the side of the democracies. 

When all is said and done, there can 
be no doubt that from the informative 
and educational point of view it is dif- 
ficult to imagine an experience that 
could be more profitable than a trip of 
this kind.

Dr. H. C. Byrd's Home Town Pours 
Out Sincere Welcome to it's Dis- 
tinguished Son as Crisfield Observes 
"Curley" Byrd Day in Honor of The 
University's President. 


Freshman Byrd President Byrd 

lit/ Bert Carhari 

t CRISFIELD'S celebration of "Cur- 
_y ley Byrd Day" turned out to be 
a plain, open-faced affair of affection 
and esteem between Dr. H. C. Byrd 
and the people of hie old home town. 

It was plain to see that when Cris- 
field's mayor, Egbert L. Quinn, sur- 
rendered the Key to Crisfield to Dr. 
Byrd he surrendered the town's heart 
as well. 

With evident pride the citizens of 
Crisfield, a hard-to-get-to-know East- 
ern Shore town, welcomed back their 
famous and favorite son and presented 
him with a bronze plaque. 

Dr. Byrd was so taken by his town's 
charms and hospitality he nearly miss- 
ed the last ferry to Annapolis. 

Sincerity Plus 

"Curley Byrd Day" was the sincere, 
home-grown product of sincere Eastern 
Shore people. Charles D. Briddell, 
general chairman of the committee, is 
another Crisfield boy who has made 
good. A graduate of the University 
in 1935, he returned to Crisfield and 
is now the president of Carvel Hall 
Cutlery, a manufacturing industry that 
employs several hundred Crisfield men 
and women. 

Mr. Briddell and a large committee 
of Dr. Byrd's Crisfield friends to- 
gether with Crisfield alumni of the 
University, decided to honor the presi- 
dent of the University at this time be- 
cause they thought that: 

"One of the very pleasant experi- 
ences for a man is that of having his 
home community show appreciation for 
him and his works." 

Success Deserved 

An editorial in The Crisfield Times 
added that they would welcome Dr. 
Byrd back as "Curley" Byrd. "For to 
his classmates and the people he grew 
up with here, delighted as they are 
for the success he has made in life, he 
will always remain "Curley" Byrd, the 
approachable, lovable, admirable fellow 
whose course through life has been 
watched with eagerness and his success 
accepted as expected and deserved." 

Three main events were featured as 
part of the celebration. An outdoor 

rally for the school-aged citizens was 
held in the afternoon alongside of Cris- 
field High. A dinner for 200 guests 
was given in the Masonic Temple in 
the early evening. Later a reception 
open to the people of Crisfield brought 
a crowd of more than a thousand to the 
National Guard Armory. 

But Dr. Byrd's early arrival got the 
day off to an unexpected start. Before 
the paint was dry on some of the 
"Welcome to Curley Byrd" signs, he 
was touring the town, trading greet- 
ings with old friends and fellow towns- 

Three Mile Walk 

When the actual "Curley Byrd Day" 
started at 3 P. M. at the high school, 
Dr. Byrd lost no time in setting a 
theme for his visit. After introduc- 
tions by Prof. George C. Carrington, 
principal of the Crisfield High School 
and by Prof. Allen Carlson, county su- 
perintendent of schools, and after band 
music by the twenty-piece American 
Legion Band, the University President 
launched into his subject. 

He recalled his own days as a school- 
boy in .Crisfield when he walked three 
miles to school, sat on a wooden bench, 
drank from an outdoor bucket and 
often shivered during the winter. Then 
he commented: 

"Sometimes I think we become too 
soft. Sometimes I think our govern- 
ment is too soft, our schools too soft, 
our living too soft." 

He cautioned his listeners to heed 
the opportunities they had, advantages 
that were located right in their own 
home town. 

The Greenest Pastures 

"In your own community are the 
greenest pastures; the greenest pas- 
tures are those you know best," he 
said. He faced the young people then 
and charged them with this question: 
"What are you doing with the oppor- 
tunities offered you ? How well are 
you taking advantage of your good 

For the dinner in the Masonic Tem- 
ple in the evening, State Comptroller 
J. Millard Tawes, Dr. Byrd's old friend 
and fellow townsman was toastmaster. 

At the head table to Dr. Byrd's right 
was his mother, Mrs. Sallie Byrd, wear- 
ing an orchid on her dress and a quiet 
smile of pride as she listened to the 
praise of her son's accomplishments. 

Mr. Briddell made a short speech of 
welcome, Mayor Quinn presented Dr. 
Byrd with the Key to Crisfield which 
W2S then passed around for the guests 
to sign. Several Crisfield residents 
entertained musically. 

1905 Classmates 

Greetings from Crisfield High School 
classmates of 1905 were extended and 
Dr. Byrd exchanged remarks with 
these members present: J. Osborn Nel- 
son, Benjamin H. Sterling, Herman 
Nelson, and Pauline Crockett. Earlier 
in the day Dr. Byrd had visited briefly 
with another member of his class, A. 
Wellington Tawes, who could not at- 
tend the dinner because of illness. 

Promptly at 8 P. M. Dr. Byrd and 
the dinner guests went down the street 
to the National Guard Amory where a 
crowd of people already had gath- 
ered. Representatives of each of the 
thirty-one organized activities in Cris- 
field were present in the Armory as 
were the Boy Scouts, the high school 
chorus and the American Legion Band. 

Alumni Tribute 

The organizations of Crisfield paid 
tribute to Dr. Byrd and a representa- 
tive of each stepped forward beneath 
a banner of his organization to show 
the way in which each unit had co- 
operated in "Curley Byrd Day." Miss 
Alberta Taylor, an alumna from the 
University, presented a tribute to Dr. 
Byrd on behalf of the alumni. 

The life of Dr. Byrd from the first 
picture of him to the present was 
traced in a slide film presentation nar- 
rated by J. Millard Tawes. Many of 
the early slides evoked merriment from 
the audience as young H. C. Byrd was 
shown with long curls when nine, with 
nobby legs as a track star at Maryland 
Agriculture College, and with his first 
born son, H. C. Byrd, Jr., as a baby 
in Football Coach Curley Byrd's arms. 

The formal conclusion of the meet- 
ing was the presentation of the plaque 
to Dr. Byrd by Mayor Quinn on behalf 
of the town of Crisfield. 




(Editorial ut Tbt Crisfield Times) 

One of the very pleasant experiences 
for a man is that of having his home 
community show appreciation for him 

and his works. 
Dr. H. Clifton Byrd, president of the 

University of Mai viand, will have that 
experience today, but it will be as 
"Curley" Byrd rather than a more for- 
mal title that honor will he done him. 

For to his classmates and the people 
he grew up with here, delighted as they 
are for the success he has made in life, 
he will always remain "Curley" Byrd, 
the approachable, lovable, admirable 
fellow whose course through life has 
been watched with eagerness and his 
success accepted as expected and de- 

So when today, "Curley" Byrd Day, 
the people of the community meet to 
pay tribute to a favorite son, there 
will be understanding in Dr. Byrd's 
heart that any praise they give him is 
sincere and every handshake is friend- 


Of course, the community has a right 
to be proud of Dr. Byrd, and it is. In 
fiction he would be a Frank Merriwell 
character. In life he is a leader of 
pronounced and outstanding' ability, in 
a field that moulds character and gives 
opportunities to young men and young 
women to secure for themselves those 
things which in their sight and mind 
are most desirable. 

On the front page of this newspaper 
appears a short sketch of Dr. Byrd's 
life and accomplishments. What his 
home town people regard as of just as 
great value, though, is the fact that 
today "Curley" Byrd is the same Byrd 
boy they have always known, more ma- 
ture, but not removed by successful ac- 
complishments from the circles in 
which he was born, grew up, and in 
which there is that mutual understand- 
ing of life's problems, ambitions, suc- 
cesses and failures, weakness and 
strength and love, which no events ir. 
life can undermine or change. 

The heights to which Dr. Byrd has 
climbed by diligent application, un- 
bounded energy, and clear vision, in 
his chosen profession, reflects to a 
great degree his home training. He 
had wise and patient and intelligent 
parents, of sound American stock, tik' 
the tributes he receives are directed at 
them too. The foundation of his life 
was strong, capable of supporting the 
edifice which has been erected upon it, 
and capable, too, of supporting such 
additional honors and glory that may 
come "Curley" Byrd's way in future 

We join with thousands of other 
home folks in saying, "Hi, Curley" to 
"Curley" Byrd today, and with them, 
wish for him all that is good and great 
in the days to come.

Smashing Win Over Michigan State Follows Victory Over Navy. 
Maryland Earns Coast to Coast Lead Headlines. 

Maryland 85; Navj 21 

AUV LAND'S Tatumtu- 
tored Terps were up to 
the job of putting new 
Byrd Stadium in com- 
mission with a dynamic- 
display of split T-power 
that keelhauled Navy 
for a 35-21 clean scrub- 
down, fore and aft. 

While the whole Maryland outfit 
played great ball against a hard hitting 
and fast moving Navy team that never 
gave up the ship, it should be noted 
that to agile sophomore Johnny Scar- 
l.ath goes the honor of the first touch- 
down in the new big-league home of 
the Terps. He was outstanding for 
the Terps in passing for two more tal- 
lies and many times had the Navy 
wallowing in the trough of the sea 
with resourceful handling of optional 
or hands off tactics. 

Elmer Wingate and Pete Augsburger 
delivered heroic jobs as did Bob Ward, 
Jake Rowden, Shoo-Shoo Shemonski, 
Ed Modzelewski and Bob Dean. 

Joseph M. Sheehan, of the New York 
Times, gives you this account of the 
game, a truly big league event, which 
made the top headline as the lead all 
sports story of the day, viz: 

"With Scarbath running the show 
with a masterful hand, Maryland was 
completely devastating in the first half, 
sweeping 68 yards to a touchdown in 
just four plays on their second time 
with the ball. The quarterback him- 

self went over on a 21-yard keep- 
sweep to the left, after passing 36 
yards to Pete Augsberger, a towering 
end whose pass-catching was uncanny. 

"In the second quarter, Maryland 
went 80 yards on five plays to tally 
on a 40-yard pass from Scarbath to 
Stan Karnash and clicked again on a 
58-yard flip from Scarbath to Ausber- 

"Navy, which had been stopped by 
an end-zone pass interception after 
leaching Maryland's 8 early in the sec- 
ond quarter and failed to get the ball 
over in four shorts from within the two- 
yard line just before the half ended, 
came to life after the intermission. 

"After a promising opening march 
had foundered on Maryland's 30, Navy 
twice stood off the Terrapins, once on 
the 25 and once on the 2 and then cut 
loose full blast. With Fred Franco 
clipping off 55 yards on a sweep, the 
midshipmen traveled 90 yards in five 
plays to a touchdown. Frank Adorney 
made it, bulling over from the 2. 

"The impressiveness of this march 
and the savagery of the Navy line, 
which had Maryland's heavier forwards 
reeling back on their heels at this 
point, made it appear that there still 
was hope that the midshipmen could 
fight back into contention. 

"However, in the fourth quarter they 
relapsed into futility, handing away 
two touchdowns that settled the issue 
beyond all doubt. Elmer Wingate 
picked off a Navy pass to run thirty

Jim Ilium is seen prominently in the forefront. His right arm is around Stanley Karnash, who

yards for Maryland's fourth score and 
Ed Modzelewski plunged five yards for 
Terrapin touchdown No. 5. A fumble 
recovery on Navy's 26 had put the Ter- 
rapins in striking position. 

"Trailing 35-7 with five minutes to 
go, Navy achieved a measure of re- 
spectability on the scoreboard by reg- 
istering twice against Maryland's re- 
serves. Bobby Zastrow, who had an 
unhappy afternoon, pitched a 51-yard 
pass to Bill Wilson, and Ted Kukowski 
scampered 20 yards with an intercept- 
ed pass for the scores. 

"The key to the whole contest was 
Navy's failure to get the ball over at 
the end of the first half. On a drive 
from their own 28, the midshipmen 
moved quickly to Maryland's 10. Dave 
Bannerman picked up a couple of yards 
and a pass interference penalty against 
the Terrapins put the ball inside the 

"Two shots at the line by Bannerman 
and Zastrow produced a first down 
inches short of the goal line but in the 
additional two chances it had before 
time ran out Navy could not make 
that microscopic distance. Mike Sor- 
rentino twice was stopped in his tracks 
on attempted quarterback sneaks. 

"At other critical junctures, too, 
Navy's attack fizzled, despite the fact 
that the midshipmen made 19 first 
downs to Maryland's 12, outrushed the 
Terrapins 198 yards to 122 and had 
only a 13-yard deficiency, 179 yards to 
192, in the air. 

"Frank Hauff, Vic Vine, Bill Powers 
and Art Sundry, as well as Franco, ran 
well for Navy and Bob McDonald and 
Wilson did a good job of pass-catching 
when Zastrow was able to get the ball 

"Bob Shemonski and Ed Fullerton, a 
rugged blocker, lent strong support to 
the talented Scarbath and Modzelewski 
in Maryland's backfield and Jake Row- 
den's line-backing had much to do with 
Navy's offensive backfiring. 

"Bob Dean kicked all of Maryland's 
extra points and Roger Drew also had 
a perfect batting average for Navy." 

Distinguished Guests 

Distinguished guests at the opening 
game included Secretary of the Navy 
Francis P. Mathews, Secretary of the 
Army Frank Pace, Secretary of Agri- 
culture Charles Brannan, Governor 
Wm. Preston Lane, Senator Millard E. 
Tydings, Admiral Forrest Sherman, 
Chief of Naval Operations, Fleet Ad- 



miral Ernest J. King, Vice Admiral 
Harry W. Hill, Superintendent of the 
Naval Academy, as well as a large 
group of Maryland legislators and 
newspaper publishers and editors. 

Maryland's 100 piece red and white 
hand contributed greatly to the gala 
occasion as did the Naval Academy 
hand and the "Hell Cats," the mid- 
shipmens' drum and bugle corps. 

The splendidly organized midship- 
men cheering section came in like a 
lion but didn't maintain that clip as 
the Terps forged ahead. 

Thirty-four schools scouted the two 
teams. Fifteen newspapers were rep- 
resented and so were the three major 
press wires. Three TV outfits recorded 
the game on film while Columbia 
Broadcasting System radiod it from 
coast to coast with Bob Wolff and 
Phil Douglas handling that assignment. 

Terps 34; Spartans 7 

For the second straight week Mary- 
land hit the sports headlines, coast to 

An estimated 5,000 impromptu but 
vociferous Terrapin fans gathered at 
Washington Airport for what officials 
stated was the greatest welcome home 
party ever staged there, as a justly 
proud and very happy man, Big Jim 
Tatum, Maryland's head football coach, 
returned with his Triumphant Terps 
straight from a smashing win over 
Michigan State, ranked as the nation's 
No. 2 team, 34 to 7. 

Only a few hours earlier close to 
40,000 people had gathered at East 
Lansing's Macklin Field to cheer on 
the topheavy favorite eleven which, 
only the week before had humbled the 
mighty Michigan Wolverines, Rosebowl 
rep and all. 

However, the Michigan crowd cashed 
in on very little about which to cheer, 
for Jim Tatum reached into the grab 
bag and tossed eleven red and white 
hand grenades onto the greensward. 
Since all of them were ticking before 

FOR ONLY $2.50 

Maryland players, when receiving their 
ticket allotment noted that this was only 
a $2.50 top game while three opponents 
the Spartans play command $.1.60 tops. 
The Terps proved a real bargain at $2.50. 

The Terps had a special rooting section 
of soldiers from Fort Custer, Mich., under 
the command of Lieut. Colonel George 
Weher, former University of Maryland 
business manager. Some of them were 
ex-Maryland boys. 

This was State's worst pasting in three 
seasons. In 1947 Michigan beat the Spar- 
tans 55-0. 

Houston Elder, former assistant coach 
at Maryland, now part-time scout for the 
Spartans, almost called the score. Before 
departing to scout Notre Dame, he said: 

"Maryland will win by four touch- 
downs. I doubt if we'll score." 

Johnnj Mil, i], r, Wa hi 

Maryland students came in force to National Airport to accord a rousing reception ><• 
homecoming football team. Here they are. their joy unconfined for their pigskin htroos. who 
trounced Michigan State. 34 to ". The size of the crowd and the noise and warmth of lh<- welcome 
surpassed any ovation ever accorded President, Prince, Potentate, or anyone else in the hlstorj of the 
airport, officials said. 

The University band and cheer leaders led the happy crowd for more than two hour- befon ■• 
big Capital Airliner hearing the Spartan-conquering Tatumterps in through the overcast. 

The band struck up "Maryland, My Maryland" and the co-eds. some in sweaters anil bobbj SOI 
and others in evening gowns, began to squeal. Their student escorts and a goodl> number of bappj 
old grads began to sing. 

Big Jim tossed them, things began to 
happen — but quickly. 

A truly magnificent and wellnigh 
perfect performance of team play hoist- 
ed Maryland's colors up to the top of 
the national football pole by a surpris- 
ing score of 34 to 7. Only a short hop 
away Purdue was trimming Notre 
Dame, ranked No. 1. 

Football experts, the tip top lot of 
them were unanimous in the opinion, 
"This was the best defensive game 
played in many a year." Many said, 
"The best defensive game I ever saw." 

This was an all-star game for Mary- 
land. Big Jim used 32 players; 32 
stars. They were brilliant on offense 
and positively scintillating on defense. 
They showed 'em something big league 
in the latter premise. 

Quarterback Johnny Scarbath, with 
the vast throng wondering how come 
a sophomore acquired the poise and 
head of Sammy Baugh, directed a great 
four touch-down campaign against the 
Spartans with another one scored on 
a long pass interception. 

Dazzling and daring laterals and 
heady team play, alternating with 
smashing line performance zipped by 
in kaleidoscopic review and may well 
have convinced the stunned and unbe- 
lieving State rooters that Aesop 
wasn't kidding when he unwrapped 
that one about the terrapin and the 

State players now know what it is 
like to be tackled by a Gierula. Chet, 
of that name, played himself some Ail- 
American football. Bashing Bob Ward 
seemed to be in just about every play 
that took place. Mighty Mo Modze- 
lewski barreled over for two touch- 
downs. Visiting scouts jotted down 
the name and number of Elmer Win- 

gate again and again. He was some- 
thing to see. 

When the Spartans, badly outclassed 
and outsmarted, took to the air six of 
their passes were intercepted. .lake 
Rowden took two, Ed Kensler, Joe 
Kuchta, Dave Cianelli and Pete I.adygo 
one each. When State fumbled Win- 
gate and Fullerton fell on it. 

Showing skill, resourcefulness and 
daring the Tatumterps moved in to 
rack up an early lead and, unawed by 
the high national rank of their oppo- 
nents, poured it on to prove thai a 
new FOOTBALL team had come to 

State's one score came in the third 
period when Sunny (Irandelius, the lad 
who starred in the Spartan's win over 
Michigan broke through the Maryland 
defense for a brilliant 68 yards to a 
touchdown. All other State thrusts 
came to naught. 

Midwestern writers, accustomed to 
rugged line play, admitted that the 
Terp display in thai department was 
tops. They also thought the headwork 
of Scarbath was aces high and. when 
Modzelewski, cornered after a long 
pass from Scarbath tha< would have 
cost the Terps quite a loss, heaved the 
oval far uplield, reducing the loss to a 
five yard penalty, the press box rated 
that one grade "A" as well. 

The Terps gambled all the way. They 
chose to kick off and used the wind. 
They were right. 

They moved tn their first score in 
only six plays. Passes to Augsburger 
.Mid Shemonski from Scarbath set the 
ball on the 5 yard markers. Two ter- 
rific smashes at the line by Mighty Mo 
scored. Dean the can't make 'em ML. 
failed to convert. He made the later

— Maryland, celebrating the dedi 
cation of its handsome new Byre 

The second score came when State 
fumbled on their 18. A perfect block 
by John Troha allowed Ed Fullerton to 
fall on it. Three passes, Scarbath to 
Shemonski, were good. A sneak play 
by Scarbath and Modzelewski smack- 
ed over for another. 

The third score came after a 71 yard 
march with Scarbath going over on a 
QB sneak. 

A few minutes later, Pete Ladygo, 
playing an alert same throughout, in- 
tercepted a pass and galloped 35 yards 
to score. 

Jake Rowden intercepted the next 
pass, running it back to State's 37. 
Scarbath tossed it to Shemonski who. 
behind perfect blocking, gamboled 36 
yards to the pay window. 

The team hoisted Coach Tatum and 
trotted off of the field. The crowd si- 
lently filed out. 

It was quite a ball game put on by

A very select group of lucky Mary- 
land students spent the summer midst 
spectacles of color and music, midst 
romance and gayety, and in the com- 
pany of the fabulous and famous peo- 
ple of early America. 

These lucky people were members of 
the cast of "Faith of Our Fathers," the 
Sesquicentennial pageant which was 
produced in Washington by the govern- 
ment in honor of the hundred and fifty 
year anniversary of the founding of 
Washington, D. C. 

The play concerned the founders of 
our country, and in the role of Eben- 
ezer Bell was Tom Jones, of the Uni- 
versity Theatre. Pernell Roberts played 
Governor. D. I. Coyne, and Dick Lusher 
played bit parts. 

Eleanor Peter, a direct descendant 
of the Custis family, and Betty Harris, 
wife of Sayre Harris, played senators' 

Harris, technical director of the Uni- 
versity Theater, did the sets for the 
show. Rudy Pugliese, speech instruc- 
tor, was stage manager. Donald Dew 
and Tom Stanhope helped in the set 

Eileen Lear, Gloria Egnoth, Marilyn 
Smith, Joan Kendel, and Buffy Shur of 
the Creative Dance group danced in 
the chorus, which was directed by a 
member of the Art Theater. 


Di-. H. C. Byrd, president of the 
University of Maryland, appointed two 
faculty members from the university t" 
attend the first session of a regional 
education conference at Daytona Beach, 
Fla. in September. 

The conference has been organized 
to chart future measures for regional 
action in the field of graduate educa- 

The two appointees are Dean I. eon 
Smith, of the School of Arts and Sci- 
ences, and acting Dean Ronald Ram- 
ford, of the Graduate School. They 
were among nearly '2.00 educators from 
the southeastern area on hand. 

Dr. Byrd attended a second confer- 
ence session for the presidents of 50 
institutions of higher learning through- 
out the southeast which followed. 

The two-session conference was called 
by the Board of Control for South- 
ern Regional Education of which Dr. 
Byrd is secretary. Faculty members 
drafted a series of recommendations at 
the first session, and these were taken 
up by the presidents at the second ses- 

Those proposals accepted by the 
presidents were then referred for leg- 
islative action to the governors of the 
thirteen states which comprise the re- 
gional organization. 

The general objective of the confer- 
ence was to identify priorities in cur- 
riculum development on a cooperative 
basis, and to develop methods for ex- 
panding and improving the total gradu- 
ate study offering throughout the 
southeastern region. 

Faculty members at the first session 
were split up into six teams and devel- 
oped six specific reports, viz: 

1. Regional centers for graduate 
study and research. 

2. Supplementary resources for grad- 
uate study and research (public agen- 
cies such as TVA, industrial plants 
and private agencies). 

3. Regional arrangements to provide 
unique services for institutions of 
higher education. 

4. Institutional self-evaluation as a 
means of improving graduate pro- 

5. Relationship of the region's grad- 
uate program to governmental and in- 
dustrial research needs. 

6. Patterns for states and for cities,

The University's Magic Club present- 
ed its third annual show in October. 

For those who like to dabble in the 
mystical unknown, Marvin Schein, 
Club president, lined up a series of fea- 
tures for "Magic Madhouse" that he 
assured would please the audience. 

Among the acts was the burning of 
a coed alive, the decapitation of a 
woman whose head was displayed be- 
fore the audience, and the suspension 
of a third coed in mid air. 

Members in the club from last year's 
successful production, "What Hap- 
pened," include Schein; Allen Perlin. 
vice president; Richard Cray, secre- 
tary; and Bill Edmonds, treasurer. 

September L950 registration tit^u r <• 

declined as expected when 8,925 pei 
sons passed through legist rat ion line 
tor the College Park schools due to tin- 

exodus of ex-GI'B, to tally a decrease 

of more than 2,000 enrollees under la I 
year's tabulation. 

An estimated 2,000 new students and 
freshmen had been expected to enroll. 

A total campus enrollment figure 
of 7,858 includes 6,778 students who 

registered for full time work on cam- 
pus. 1,080 persons registered for part- 
time work here. 

The addition of 1 ,0<>7 students who 
registered for off-campus part-time 
and graduate work makes up a grand 
total of 8,025 students. 

Registration figures last fall were 
reported at well over 10,000. This fig- 
ure was substantially reduced by the 
largest veteran graduating class — 
2,000 students who left in June — in 
the University's history. 

With some veterans enrollments still 
reported this year, officials accord the 
decrease in registration figures partly 
to the Korean situation and partly to 
the decrease in Maryland high school 
graduates last year. 

Registration also included a large 
number of new freshman veterans for 
the first time under the soon-to-expire 
GI Bill of Rights. 

Doyle Royal, registration director, 
said that the procedure this year was 
"smoother than ever." 

Veterans enrollment seemed to be 
up again this year as the lines around 
vets counters grew early in the week. 

Carl Neher, who issued vets book 
cards, said that even the freshman 
class held a large percentage of vet- 
eran students. 

"The lines coming through here," he 
said, "seemed longer than in years be- 
fore." He indicated new veteran en- 
rollment may be even greater than last 

Officials from the campus police de- 
partment reported that more than 
4,000 automobiles had been issued 
parking lot stickers at the Armory 
desks. University parking lots will ac- 
commodate approximately 7,000 cars at 
a time. 


Fall Convocation took place in Rit- 
chie Coliseum on October 19, 1950, with 
Dean Pyle, Chairman of the Univer- 
sity's Public Functions Committee. 

In accordance with a policy estab- 
lished at the request of the Deans of 
Maryland's undergraduate colleges, 
the convocation speaker was Dr. H. C. 
Byrd, University President. His sub- 
ject was "The University of Maryland 
—What It Stands For." 


A telegraph office has been estab- 
lished in the telephone section of the 
Education building for local students. 
Telegrams and cablegrams are accept- 
ed from 8 A. M. until 5 P. M. Mondays 
through Saturdays. 

The office will be closed on Sundays 
and University holidays.

Recently returned from a tour of thv

rings by swinging, rather than by acti- 
vation of the clapper alone. 

Around the body of the bell in

freedom, and above the figures is a 
circle of laurel leaves denoting peace.

All Maryland University undergrad- 
uate men are eligible for one of the 
six Regional $500 Leadership Scholar- 
ships which will be awarded December 
1, 1950, by the Trustees of Delta Upsi- 
lon Educational Foundation. 

The purpose of the scholarships is to 
give financial aid in education to male 
undergraduate students who have lead- 
ership potentiality and have demon- 
strated some actual constructive 
achievement on the campus. 


Draft officials will try to apply the 
new college student deferment plan, 
based on scores in a national aptitude 
test, by the end of the school term in 
June 1951. 

This involves a tremendous testing 
and classification job to be completed 
by early summer if some current stu- 
dents, whose orders for induction have 
been postponed until the end of tin 
present school year, are to stay out of 

It means, too, immediate work to 
iron out controversial points in the new 
plan, proposed by scientific and pro- 
fessional leaders and endorsed by S 
lective Service Director Lewis B. lie: 

The deferment plan was endorsed in 
principle by more than 900 educators, 
including 600 college presidents, at a 
conference called by tin American 
Council of Education. 



A capacity crowd of 43,836 filled Maryland's new stadium on September 30, 1950, for the opening game in which Maryland defeated Navy. As the 
illustration above indicates work is still in progress. This picture shows Unit 1. Unit 2. to be added, will consist of double decking the stands shown 
above and I'nit •'! will call for closing in, double decked, the open end shown above. Ultimate capacity. 92,000.

versity's President, inspect Maryland's new Stadium, shortly before the Maryland Navy game. 


(Continued from page 4) 

Even "the" paper knows that to be a 
fact, although "the" paper has shown 
a remarkable talent for printing, re- 
gardless of facts. 

"The" paper's writers say, "Dr. 
Byrd has done a great job. He's a 
great man. We know that. But we 
can't write it for our paper." 

No one in his right mind expects 
"the" paper to acquaint its readers 
with the following simple facts, which 
we print here for the benefit of our 
alumni readers with full confidence that 
they will have already adduced as 
much, viz: 

For several years after the Stadium 
was first authorized Dr. Byrd strenu- 
ously opposed the insistence, from nu- 
merous tangents, that the Stadium be 
named after him. 

The oversigned attended a meeting, 
some months ago, of the Terrapin 
Club, at which leading Maryland alum- 
ni passed a unanimous and enthusiasts 
resolution urging the Board of Regents 
to name the Stadium in honor of Dr. 



Above are two "shots" of the new Hyrd Stadium from the camera of Joe l)i Paola. Jr.. courtesy si the HAI.TIMOItK RVRNING Bl N u. . ,,, 
were taken just before the sodding began. "There is going to he a football game in the new Sladium." wrote Francis Stann, of the W iSHlNGTON 81 \ 1> 
"and the Midshipmen will orohahlv march in the front entrance while the cao'pler^ withdraw through the rear ffstes." 

Outstanding leadership, assiduous cooperation and loyalty to the I'niversity and the President form a combination which. SOSBStllBSS again*.! o\ rr » helming 
odds, gels things done. 

The identical occurrence marked a 
meeting: of the "M" Club, composed of 
Maryland's past athletic greats. 

To make this logical triune complete 
the Board of Regents had long since 
decided on "Byrd Stadium" and had re- 
mained adamant in spite of objections 
from Dr. Byrd and none other. 

"The"' paper, of course, has repeat- 
edly contended that Dr. Byrd influences 
the Board of Regents in all its decis- 
ions. While such an assertion is ridi- 
culous and constitutes a gross insult 
reflecting on the caliber, position and 
intelligence of the Board of Regents, 
certainly even "the" paper will lack 
the temerity to allege that the "M" 
Club and the Terrapin Club, composed 
of fellows held together by a bond of 
loyalty to an institution for which they 
gave much of themselves over the 
years, could be influenced by Dr. Byrd 
or anyone else. 

"M" Club men are athletes who 
would, more than any group existent, 
be familiar with the individuals after 
whom a Maryland stadium should be 
named as well as the accomplishments 
that would impel such naming. 

The Terrapin Club is similarly quali- 
fied for identical reasons. 

For originality and thought of ex- 
pression the diatribe in "the" paper 
reflected the intelligence displayed by 
the rhinoceros that fell prey to the 
assegai-carrying African bushman hid- 
ing in the crotch of a tree, calmly con- 
vinced that the rhino would jolly well 
stumble down to the bloomin' old water 
'ole to get himself a bit of a drink. 

Similarly, when the naming of "Byrd 
Stadium" was enthusiastically decided 
upon, folks fortunate enough to be 
associated with Dr. Byrd at the Univer- 
sity, predicted, .months in advance and 
almost verbatim the piece that would be 
printed in "the" paper. 

With ulterior motives paramount and 
axes of perverted opinion to grind 
"the" paper has made no effort to 
fathom the general loyalty to and re- 
spect for the University's President. 
Even the most cursory research would 
have crystallized the realization that 
Maryland faculty and alumni loyalty to 
the University are synonymous with 
loyalty to Dr. Byrd. 

'"The" paper points out that Dr. 
Byrd is the only man after whom two 
stadia have been named in his life 

time. That's a bullseye! It suggests 
the thought that possibly he is the only 
man who by sheer achievement has 
EARNED such dual distinction, just 
appreciation of his efforts bringing 
about the insistence that the stadium 
be named after a leader who has won 
great loyalty upward by giving it 
downward. Thats' the ONLY way, in- 
cidentally, in which loyalty can be 

The first Byrd Stadium was so named 
in 1923. Dr. Byrd was not President of 
the University then. Old Byrd Stadium 
was built to seat 2,800 persons. New 
Byrd Stadium seats 43,836. The nu- 
merical difference illustrates the growth 
of the University under Dr. Byrd. 

The Veterans of Foreign Wars have 
a hard and fast rule prohibiting VF\V 
posts being named for living men. 
Along came Admiral Robert E. Coontz. 
U. S. N., former Commander in Chief 
of the Fleet and Chief of Naval Oper- 
ations. He had done so very much for 
veterans and the will to recognize his 
contributions was so great that a post 
in Seattle threw the rules out of the 
nearest porthole and adopted the name 
"Admiral Robert E. Coontz Post." 

Reference to that at a post meeting 
impelled a VFW member to unlimber 
the recitation, "Do It Now!", viz: 

If with pleasure you are viewing 

Any work a man is doing. 
If you like him. or you love him, tell him 

now ! 
Don't withhold your approbation 
'Til the parson makes oration. 
And he lies with snowy lilies on his brow. 
For no matter how you shout it. 
He won't care a thing about it. 
He won't know how many tear drops you 

have shed. 
If you think some praise is due him. 
Now's the time to slip it to him. 
For he cannot read his tombstone when 

hes' dead ! 

More than fame and more than money. 

Is the comment, kind and sunny. 

And the hearty, warm approval of a 
friend ; 

For it gives to life a savor. 

And it makes men stronger, braver. 

It gives out heart a*i*l spirit to the end. 

If he earns your praise, bestow it : 

If you like him, let him know it. 

Let the words of true encouragement ln- 

Do not wait 'til life is over. 

And he lies beneath the clover, 

Hoy. he cannot read his tombstone when 
he's dead ! 

Maryland folk in general appreciate 
that Dr. Byrd has done a terrific job 

down through the years, intelligent, 
thorough and with great vision. They 

know that Dr. Byrd's objectives have 

been attained by assiduous | ■ 
ance on the part of a man of tremend 
ous drive and exceptionally rare abil- 
ity. Thai is the University's good for- 

tune and the many who have bene! 
by his efforts realize that, relatively, 
there is very little they can do toward 
showing their appreciation. Naming 
Maryland's fine new athletic edifice 
"Byrd Stadium," is, in the final analy- 
sis, little enough honor to accord to 
the man who devoted years of constant 
effort and ceaseless energy to the de- 
velopment of a great University of 
which the stadium is, comparatively 
only a small part. 

There's a saying that goes some 
thing like this: "Some seek honors, 
some earn honors and some have hon- 
ors thrust upon them." 

Maryland men all over the world, 
know full well that Curley Byrd quali- 
fies under the latter part of that axiom 

What is a stadium ? Why is a sta- 
dium? A stadium is much more than 
a place in which to seat a large crowd 
attracted by a big game. A stadium is 
a forceful, vibrant manifestation and 
crystallization of the public's recogni- 
tion of the need for higher education. 

The public demand for education is 
there. It involves, in ever increasing 
numbers, the graduation of high school 
students to the University level. Only 
when there is leadership of sufficient 
vision and force to mold such a situ- 
ation into the "show window" that is 
a great stadium does such a struc- 
ture come into being. The condition, 
the situation was there. It is there in 
other States as well. Maryland was 
fortunate in having at the helm a 
man who was successful in bringing 
about the physical presentation of the 
State's educational need and growth. 
Discuss the I'niversity and iis educa- 
tional advantages with the average citi- 
zen, sooner or later during convi 
tion on that important subject hell 
get around to "What sou o( a team 
are you going to have'.'" All who 
are acquainted with university prob- 
lems are fully aware of what is 
resented by a stadium and those who 
are not aware of it, who do not a] 
ciate the accomplishments in this pre- 
mise of a leadei such as Dr. Byrd, 
apparently do not know at what time 
the bus is scheduled to leave 


The new stadium opened with the 
Navy game 43.83c attendance forming 
the greatest crowd ever attracted to a 
sports event in this area. 

Viewing that vast throng attracted 
to an event which skyrocketed Mary- 
land into the top headlines of New 
York newspapers and from coast to 
coast it was difficult to realize that the 
huge structure accommodating the 
crowd is located not in the heart of a big 
city but in an area which only recently 
might have provided the inspiration for 
the late George M. Cohan's "Indians 
and Trees." At that time the stadium 
and the thousands enjoying it existed 
only in the vision and practiced imagi- 
nation of the man after whom the 
stadium is named. 

While Governor Lane spoke in glow- 
ing terms of the stadium and how 
much it would do for the people of 
Maryland, and while Judge Cole, chair- 
man of the Board of Regents, told the 
vast assemblage that the Board had 
insisted that the stadium be named for 
Dr. Byrd, that distinguished leader 
stood in the far background, unobtru- 
sive and almost unobserved. 

It made one wonder how the sheer 
decency of ordinary fair play could be 
set aside while a printed attack left 
a permanent record proving utter lack 

of vision to the extent of indicating 
that a man had built a stadium for 

One could not help but recollect in 
comparison the statement of one of 
Maryland's most prominent alumni. 
"Just as surely as the shadow of 
Thomas Jefferson lies across the cam- 
pus of the University of Virginia, the 
shadow of 'Curley' Byrd similarly lies 
across the campus of the University 
of Maryland." 

Out in Hollywood Sam Goldwyn is ac- 
corded full meed of credit for great ac- 
complishments in the motion picture 
industry. Criticism comes only to peo- 
ple who do things. The greater the 
person the more inviting the target. 
And so the critics turn loose on Sam 
Goldwyn who, in addition to being a 
real go-getter is also credited with 
booting the King's English for sundry 
and assorted field goals. So, referring to 
his critics, Mr. Goldwyn is said to have 
exclaimed, "Critics? They roll off my 
back like a duck!" 

Believe us, "the" paper's criticism 
affects Dr. Byrd about the same way. 

This might be a good spot to quote a 
couple of earlier Americans' reactions 
to critics. 

"If I were to try to read," said Abra- 
ham Lincoln, villified as few have ever 

been, "much less answer, all the at- 
tacks made on me, this shop might as 
well be closed for any other business. 
I do the very best I know how — the 
very best I can; and I mean to keep 
doing so until the end. If the end 
brings me out all right, what is said 
against me won't amount to anything. 
If the end brings me out wrong, ten 
angels swearing I was right would make 
no difference. 

"In the battle of life," said Theodore 
Roosevelt, "it is not the critic who 
counts; not the man who points out 
how the strong man stumbled, or where 
the doer of a deed could have done bet- 
ter. The credit belongs to the man who 
is actually in the arena; whose face is 
marred by dust and sweat and blood; 
who strives valiantly; who errs and 
comes short again and again, because 
there is no effort without error and 
shortcoming; who does actually strive 
to do the deeds; who knows the great 
enthusiasms, the great devotions, 
spends himself in a worthy cause; who 
at the best knows in the end the tri- 
umph of high achievement; and who 
at the worst, if he fails, at least fails 
while daring greatly, so that his place 
shall never be with those cold and timid 
souls who have tasted neither victory 
nor defeat." 



X^l piopriately named in honor of 
the President under whose sterling 
leadership the University of Maryland 
has undergone tremendous expansion, 
will accommodate some 50,000 specta- 
tors, and, eventually, 92,000. 

To mold the na- 
tural amphitheatre 
a total of 280,000 
cuibic yards of dirt 
was removed. The 
architecture is in 
parabola style. 
Rather than a per- 
fect horseshoe in 
shape, it is contour- 
ed so that it affords 
all spectators a clear 
view of the playing 
field. The rows of 
seats are tiered on 
the same principle 
employed in t h e - 

Mr. Carroll atreS. 

108,900 Square Feet 

The playing field proper is made up 
of 2'/ z acres, a total of 108,900 square 
feet. Blue grass has been placed on 12" 
of prepared top soil together with 150 
ti.ns of Michigan Peat and fertilizer. 
The track surrounding the greensward 
is 24' wide and has 6 running lanes 
with a 220' straightaway. A total of 
750 tons of head engine cinders went 
to make the running track. 

By George L. Carroll 

Over 8,000 tons of concrete has been 
poured to mold the permanent seats. 
Aluminum brackets have been bolted 
irtc the concrete to secure the seating 
surface of select redwood from Cali- 
fornia. 200,000 lineal feet of redwood 
was used. There are enough of these 
special type brackets in the stadium to 
allot V-2 of a bracket to each spectator. 
They have been tested and hold 16,500 
pounds. Byrd Stadium is the first in 
the nation to use this type of bracket. 
If these were placed end to end they 
would extend from Washington to Bal- 

Miles of Piping 

About twelve miles of piping is 
buried below the surface. Six rest 
rooms are conveniently located. There 
are three main entrances, 24 separate 
gateways and 4 openings on the open 

For the teams there are two large 
dressing and training rooms with nu- 
merous shower facilities. An equip- 
ment room is also included. 

At the open end a ramp measuring 
27 feet across will provide for entry 
and exit of marching units and bands. 

Three buildings at the end of the sta- 
dium are still under construction. They 
will contain dressing and meeting 
rooms and other facilities. In the rear 
of these buildings are five practice 
fields and one baseball diamond. 

The freshman field is on the lower 
level beyond the varsity practice fields. 


An eight foot tall chain link fence 
will be erected at the outside of the 
87% foot milling area. It will be 
10,000 lineal feet long. 

On the building at the far end the 
very latest in scoreboards has been 
erected. It is all electric and will fea- 
ture vital information to make the 
game more enjoyable to the spectator. 
A well amplified RCA public address 
system has been included. 

The public address system and score- 
board will be operated from a special 
booth in the press box. That building 
will be 131 feet long and 27 feet wide. 
It will have an area of 70 feet with two 
rows for the working press. The radio, 
television, public address and scout 
booths will be 10 feet wide. Western 
Union will install the very latest in 
printers. All types of current are pro- 
vided. A 24 foot snack bar is contain- 
ed in the press box for use by the work- 
ing members. There is a 2 inch deck- 
ing with an iron railing providing 
space for newsreel and camermen on 
top of the building. Phones will be lo- 
cated conveniently, including pay 
phones for the use of the general pub- 
lic. A small kitchen and sandwich 
counter is included. 

Ultimately 92,000 Seats 

Approximately 10,000 motor cars can 
be handled on all the fields and regular 
parking areas around the campus. In 
the permanent stands a total of 45 rows 

of seats will accommodate spectators. 
There are 29 rows of these, and with 
an additional 17,000 temporary stands 
set up in one end zone and conveniently 
located around the milling area, the 
total will be 50,000. It is planned that 
lights will be installed for 1951. 

Over 1,000 men of all trades wire 
employed in construction. The cost has 
been less than $1,000,000. 

The stadium, as now constructed is 
the first unit. The second unit will be 
double decking of the present stands. 
The third involves carrying the upper 
and lower stands around the open end 
of the horseshoe for an ultimate seat- 
ing capacity of 92,000. 

Navy was the ideal opponent for 
Maryland in the stadium dedication 
game. If Maryland had had the choice 
of selecting from a list of all the teams 
in the country, the first and most log- 
ical choice would have been our Mary- 
land neighbor, Navy. 

Both teams make their homes in the 
Old Line State, one of the thirteen 
original colonies. As Navy men of 
colonial days manned the guns on 
"Washington's cruisers," Maryland 
men won the appellation "Old Liners" 
for their heroic combat accomplish- 
ments under General Washington. 


Dorothy Binns, graduate of Ran- 
dolph Macon, Columbia University, and 
the University of Virginia, and a resi- 
dent of Fredericksburg, Virginia, will 
begin work soon as assistant to Adele 
Stamp, Dean of Women, at the Uni- 
versity of Maryland. Miss Binns will 
succeed Rosalie Leslie, who is leaving 
the University to reside in New York. 

Miss Binns' experience as a teacher 
h*s been extensive; she taught at St. 
Agnes Episcopal School in Alexandria 
and at Mills College in California. At 
Mills, Miss Binns obtained her master's 
degree in Personnel, Guidance, and 
Counciling. She was later appointed 
head of all student activities at that 

Additional preparation for the posi- 
tion of women's counselor was obtained 
at Columbia University and the Uni- 
versity of Virginia. Miss Binns has 
studied also at the State Department 
School of Foreign Studies. 

Miss Binn's specific work will be 
chiefly that of social director. The in- 
terviewing, guidance, and counseling of 
freshmen and seniors will come under 
her jurisdiction also. 


Miss Elizabeth Nelson has been ap- 
pointed Assistant Dean of Women at 
the University of Maryland, Dean of 
Women Adele H. Stamp has announced. 
Miss Nelson replaces Miss Jane Caton 
as guidance counselor. 

Much of Miss Nelson's time will be 
spent in interviewing Freshmen women 
and transfer students. She will also 
serve as an advisor for the Women's 
Student Government Association. Miss 
Nelson received her Bachelor of Arts 
degree from the University of Wiscon- 
sin. After teaching for several years,

President. General Alumni Council 

AGAIN, I want to direct the atten- 
tion of the Alumni to their pub- 
lication "MARYLAND". For nearly 
six months we have been engaged in a 
campaign to increase the number of 
subscribers. Letters, announcements, 
subscription blanks and personal con- 
tacts have each been used in turn to 
emphasize to non-subscribing alumni 
^^^■w the desirability of 

^^^^^jm joining with those 

m ^m whose subscriptions 

T__l make "MARY- 
f& •« ^ LAND" possible. 
■— We have made 


substantial gains, 
but there remain 
many alumni who 
do not subscribe to 
those readers who 
Pres. Koons are regular subscri- 

bers, I make this re- 
quest. When you have finished reading 
"MARYLAND" pass it on to one of 
your alumni friends who is not a sub- 
scriber, with the suggestion that he 
become a regular subscriber without 
further delay. 

If the reader desires to contact 
alumni in his community who are not 
subscribng to our magazine a postal 
card to our Alumni Secretary, Dave 
Brigham, will bring promptly the 
names and addresses of the non-sub- 
scribing alumni together with a num- 
ber of subscription blanks. 

In these and other ways the indi- 
vidual alumnus can perform a real ser- 
vice to the Alumni Association by se- 
curing additional subscriptions to our 
publication "MARYLAND." 

The Constitution of the Alumni As- 
sociation has been unanimously amend- 
ed to provide membership on the 
Alumni Council for representatives of 
the "M" Club and the geographical 
alumni clubs which have been estab- 
lished in New York City, Baltimore 
and Cumberland. This amendment will 
become effective at the Annual Meet- 
ing of the Council which will be held 
in early November, 1950. 

Incidentally, if there is an alumni 
club in your community which has not 
been registered with the Alumni Secre- 
tary, send in the details of the organi- 
zation promptly as this club may be 
eligible for representation on the 
Alumni Council.

Drapes for the building are to cover 
every window, both upstairs and down. 

The public address system lias ■ 
improved with the installation of a 
complete radio control room. Dinner 
music is played during the luncheon 
and dinner periods, and important cam- 
pus announcements are presented 
through this medium. 

Loud speakers, powerful enough to 
reach the entire campus, have 
erected on the roof of the dining hall. 
These will be used to broadcast special 
events of campus interest such as elec- 
tion results, away football games, 
Christmas and other seasonal music 

Sliding doors are to be installed in 
the old section of the building, enab- 
ling the scheduling of small banquets 
and special meetings in this part of 
the Dining Hall. 

Mr. Lappin stated that his propo 
plan for decorative murals had b 
temporarily halted by the prohibitive 
cost of the work. He quoted one New 
York artist who estimated the cost of 
the project to be about $30,000. 

When asked about the increased cosl 
of food, Mr. Lappin said, "Like every- 
one else, I am worried about the in- 
creased cost of living, especially food, 
but I will do everything within my pow- 
er to give the students the kind of 
meals that thev like."

Win Three Firsts 

FOR the second year in a row Mary- 
land 4-H dairy cattle judging team 
won first place at both the Atlantic 
Rural Exposition in Richmond, Va., 
and at the National Dairy Cattle Con- 
gress at Waterloo, Iowa. This year's 
winnings brought the record of Mary- 
land triumphs at Waterloo to 4 out of 
the past 5 years. 

All of this happened on Monday, Oc- 
tober 2; the same day that the Free 
State 4-H livestock judging team came 
through with first place laurels at the 
Atlantic Rural Exposition. 

Competing at Richmond in the dairy 
field were Ellen Chambers, Rt. 3, West- 
minster; Bruce Berlage, Olney; Rich- 
ard Simons, Forest Hill; and Dean 
Hash, Port Deposit. They defeated 
teams from Indiana, South Carolina, 
Delaware, West Virginia, and Virginia. 
Hash was second place individual' in 
the contest and Berlage was third. The 
team was accompanied to Richmond by 
Mylo S. Downey, State Boys' 4-H Club 

The livestock judging team, which 
was from Montgomery County, defeat- 
ed representatives from four other 
states. Harold Mullinix of Mt. Airy 
was high individual with 411 points. 
Herbert King of Gaithersburg was 
fourth individual in the contest with 
357 points. Other members of the 

team were Millard Lethridge, Ashton 
and Donald Hobbs Buck, Jr., of Sandy 
Spring. They were coached by Roscoe 
Whipp, Assistant County Agent in 
Montgomery County and Boyd Whittle 
of the Animal Husbandry Department 
at Maryland. 

If the United States is invited to 
send a team to an international con- 
test, the winners of the Waterloo con- 
test are selected for that honor. Mary- 
land has sent two teams abroad in the 
past three years, but plans for another 
international contest are still uncer- 

The potential contests for such an 
event are: Barbara Riggs, Gaithers- 
burg; Janice Palmer, Olney; Robert 
Baron, Queen Anne; and Glen Mc- 
Grady, Rising Sun. They won the op- 
portunity at Waterloo by defeating 
teams from 20 states. 

The team, as a whole, placed first in 
the judging of Jersey and Ayrshires. 
They were second in Brown Swiss. 
Robert Barton was the high individual 
in the contest and was rated tops in 
judging of Holsteins and Ayrshires. 

Twin Calves Wanted 

Identical twin calves are in great de- 
mand at the University of Maryland 
for use in experiments conducted by 
the Dairy Department. Farmers who 
have sets of identical twin calves are 
invited to contact that department at 


The importance of the canning industry to the welfare and prosperity of Maryland's citizens was 
Ihe keynote of the University of Mnrvland Extension Service exhibit at the 1950 Timonium State 
Fair. Above, J. I). McVean, Kent County Agricultural Agent, "points with pride" to the Eastern 
Shore area on the hie state man that highlighted the display. Looking on is R. L. Faison. manager 
of the American Can Company's Maryland factory in Baltimore which annually produces millions 
of containers for this state's crops. The exhibit was nrcs<-ntcd by the Extension Service with the 
cooperation of the canning and can manufacturing industries. 


College Park. However, the scientists 
ask them to check first to be certain 

that the animals are identical twins; 
that is, alike in every respect, same 
size, same general conformation, same 
sex, and with about the same color pat- 

The research workers report thai 
tests already completed have proven 
the value of identical twins. They state 
that one set of identical twins will re- 
place 40 ordinary animals for growth 
experiments and one hundred in milk 
production studies. Since identical 
twin cows will produce almost exactly 
alike, experiments with such animals 
are comparahle to running the same 
cow twice under the same conditions. 

Dr. Joseph Shaw of the Dairy De- 
partment says that twins have heen 
used in several experiments at the Uni- 
versity. The milk-producing ability of 
hay and silage harvested under differ- 
ent conditions is now being studied. 
Other tests are aimed at determining 
fat requirements of dairy cattle and 
preventive measures against aceto- 
nemia in daily herds. 

In inviting farmers to sell their 
identical twin animals to the Univer- 
sity, Dr. Shaw states, "The use of the 
twin calves will speed research work 
and enable the University to render 
greater service to Free State farm- 

New Guernsey Hull 

A new Guernsey bull, McDonald 
Farms Inheritor, has been added to the 
artificial breeding bull stud at College 
Park. This proven sire has 8 daughters 
with Dairy Herd Improvement Associa- 
tion records. They average 9,581 
pounds of milk and 538 pounds of fat 
on twice a day milking for 305 days. 
Five dam-daughter comparisons show 
that he increased production by 904 
pounds of milk and 112 pounds of fat. 

Dairy specialists at the University 
report that "his daughters possess 
large deep bodies, square rumps, 
straight legs and strongly attached 
well-shaped udders." They add that 
dairymen wishing to have more infor- 
mation about the artificial breeding 
program should get in touch with their 
local County Agent.

Raymond V. Leighty '38 Ag. is now 
secretary-treasurer of the Graves 
County Agricultural Council in May- 
field, Ky. He has recently had major 
responsibility for efforts to establish a 
chapter of "Friends of the Land" in 
the area, has had a large part in a 
special edition of the city paper which 
placed major emphasis on soil conser- 
vation, and directed an extensive dis- 
play at the county fair.

From Argentina 

Addressed to Dean of Women Adele 
H. Stamp, comes an interesting: letter 
from Dorothy (Murray) White (Edu- 
cation '24; M.S., Education '44), San 
Martin 248, Buenos Aires: 

"Here I am beginning; to think of col- 
lege for my second child," wrote Mrs. 
White. "Ben is just completing his 
freshman year at V.M.I., and Esther 
will be ready to enter college in Sep- 
tember, 1951. She wants to go to 
Maryland and I think that is a happy 
choice but I do want some help before 
we decide. We are so terribly far 
away and I would like to know how 
much supervision the girls get in the 
dormitories, how the roommates are 
chosen, how much freedom they have 
over weekends, how much spending 
money is considered an average allow- 
ance, and of course any other items of 
information you could send me about 
the coeds' life. Is there a waiting list 
and when should I make her applica- 
tion ? She will graduate from the 
American High School here in July, 
1951. It is on the list of accreditee! 
high schools in the States, so I presume 
she would not have to take an entrance 
examination — if I am wrong please tell 
me. Also, will you please ask the 
Registrar to send us a catalogue?" 

"I remember with much pleasure" 
concluded Mrs. White, "the all too few 
times we saw each other when I was 
home during the war. I do hope these 
years have been happy ones for you. 
Life is much more complicated here 
than in the old days and we wish we 
were all coming back. I can't tell you 
how thankful I am that I can write to 
you about my problems and I'll appre- 
ciate your help a great deal."

In Indianapolis 

Dean S. S. Steinberg, upon invitation 
of the United States Department of 
Labor, attended the Indiana State- 
Wide Conference held in Indianapolis 
in September. He represented the 
Presidents Conference on Industrial 
Safety and presented a paper on the 
work and accomplishments of that or- 
ganization. Recently, Dean Steinberg 
was named Chairman of the Commit- 
tee on Education of the President's 

Dean Steinberg, Chairman of the 
Committee on Education, President's 
Conference on Industrial Safety, in 
addressing the Governor of Indiana's 
State-wide Safety Conference at In- 
dianapolis, said: 

"Injury and death have always ac- 
companied industrial activity; and 
until only a few 
decades ago, this 
form of waste was 
accepted as a neces- 
sary part of indus- 
trial enterprise. It 
was not until the 
passage of work- 
men's compensation 
legislation, w h i c h 
made work-connect- 
ed injuries expen- 
sive, that serious ef- 
forts began to be 
made to prevent 
them. The organized 
safety movement 
dates from the for- 
m a t i o n of the 
National Safety Council in 1913. Great 
progress has been made in reduc- 
ing work injuries, but creditable as 
the achievement has been thus far, 
very much more must be done if the 
great continuing waste that industrial 
accidents constitute is to be brought 

down to a reasonably satisfactory fig- 

"The President's Conference came 
into being in response to a letter from 
I • idenl Ti uman to the Secretary of 

Di-jin Strinberjr 

Labor in which he called attention to 
work accidents in 1947 resulting in 
2,000,000 injured, 17,000 killed, and 
91,000 permanently disabled. 

"The Committee on Education has 
thus far issued two reports. The Com- 
mittee believes that safety is largely a 
matter of education and training. 

"Under its broad scope to study the 
needs and methods of adequately inte- 
grating and implementing industrial 
safety education and training in all 
pertinent areas and levels of education, 
including educational institutions, em- 
ployers, labor, and public and private 
agencies, the 1949 Committee present- 
ed a large number of specific recom- 
mendations. These were devoted to 
the inclusion of safety in the following 
classes of educational institutions: ele- 
mentary, secondary, vocational and 
technical schools; colleges and univer- 
sities; schools by employers for their 
employees; schools by labor unions for 
union personnel; and safety education 
by public agencies. 

These recommendations may be sum- 
marized as seeking to accomplish the 
following major purposes: 

(«) To develop in each student an 
understanding of safety prin- 
ciples and a sense of responsi- 
bility for his own safety and 
that of his fellow students and 
others with whom he is in con- 

(b) To prepare teachers for the ade- 
quate inclusion of pertinent 
safety materials in the subjects 
they teach, and particularly 
safe practices in all shop and 
laboratory instruction*: 

(c) To integrate pertinent safety 
material i>i the various courses 
in the engineering curricula. 

(d) To develop safety training 
courses as the demand and con- 
ditions may justify. 

(c) To secure the inclusion of perti- 
nent safety material in text- 

The Committee presented the follow- 
ing new recommendations: 
"For Labor 

(a) Union participation in off-the- 
job and community safety pro- 

(h) Production of safety films, Mm 
strips, bulletins and safety post- 
er programs. 

(c) Company safety training for 

shop stewards as irell as for 

(d) That a portion Of each regular 

membership meeting be devoted 

to safety; that great speakers 
from government, industry, la- 
bor, insurance companies, safe- 
ty councils, colleges and univer- 


sities, and other organizations 
be invited to assist in this con- 
(e) Sponsored radio programs 
union, j>ublic services, National 
Safety Council, etc. 
"For Public and Private Agencies 

(a) Conduct nationwide public edu- 
cational activities through 
press, radio, films, and other 
channels, to focus attention on 
all phases of safety with par- 
ticular attention to occupa- 
tional safety. 

(b) Collect and furnish essential 
statistical data to employers, or- 
ganized labor, schools, and oth- 
er agencies which are in a posi- 
tion to carry or. occupational 
safety educational activities. 

(c) Through conferences (National, 

regional, and local), publica- 
tions, and direct consulting ser- 
vices, to assist management to 
keep informed of their respon- 
sibilities for the prevention of 
occupational accidents and aid 
them in planning and conduct- 
ing educational p r o g r a m s 
(imoug their employees. 
(<•/) Prepare and furnish educa- 
tional material, including pub- 
lications, jtosters, films, and oth- 
er visual aids for use by man- 
agement in carrying out safety 
training and educational activi- 
ties in their respective estab- 
"On the engineering college level, 
one of the major objectives of the 
Committee on Education is to work out 
a practical method of integrating safe- 
ty into the engineering curricula. This 
is particularly important when we 
realize that the students in our engi- 
neering colleges today will be the in- 
dustrial leaders of the future. Their 
training in classroom and laboratory 
brings them into daily contact with the 
equipment, machinery, and methods em- 
ployed by industry and hence the im- 
portance of their understanding the 
basic principles of industrial safety and 
its function, within the students' par- 
ticular field of specialization. 

"In discussing this matter of integra- 
tion of safety into engineering college 
courses with the Committee on Educa- 
tion last spring, I offered the coopera- 
tion of the faculty of the College of 
Engineering at the University of 
Maryland to explore a practical method 
of doing this job. Since the University- 
is located close to the National Capi- 
tal, it was suggested that the staff of 
the Bureau of Labor Standards co- 
operate with us in undertaking this 
study. In response, the Bureau agreed 
to the undertaking and made specific 
staff assignments for that work. It is 
understood that this will be an experi- 
mental endeavor, the results of which 
will be made available to all colleges 
of engineering for further development 
by them. The project is being actively 
pushed by the faculty members at 
the University with the expectation 
that integration of safety can be initi- 
ated in key subjects at the opening of 
the Fall semester this month. 

"The task of promoting safety in 

human activities is a never-ending one; 
hut it is heartening to those of us en- 
gaged in this human activity to note 
that definite progress is being made 
each year. Our efforts have been well 
expressed by thai master of pithy ex- 
pression, Shakespeare, who in his play 
King Henry the Fourth has one of his 
characters say: 

'Thi' purpose you undertake la dangerous: 
why that's certain; 'tis dangerous to take ^ 
cold, to sleep, to drink ; but 1 tell you, my 
lord fool, out of this nettle, danger, we pluck 
this Bower, safety.' 

"Though these lines were penned 

long- before the advent of the industrial 

age, and refer to other hazards than 

those of industry, they do offer us a 

slogan for our objectives, namely, 

'Out of this nettle, danger, we pluck 

this flower, safety.' We could not be 

engaged in a nobler work."

College-Level Courses in Tripoli 

OFFICERS and airmen of Wheelus 
Field, Tripoli, Libya, are attend- 
ing University of Maryland classes at 
the MAT'S Atlantic Division base. 
The program, in force there since early 
October, leads potentially to a bache- 
lor's degree from the University. 

Details for establishing the college 
level study program at the north Afri- 
ca r. installation were arranged by Dr. 
Ray Ehrensberger, Director of the Eu- 
ropean program for the University of 
Maryland and Captain James H. Har- 
ris, Wheelus Information and Educa- 
tion Officer at Wheelus Field. 

Individual officers and airmen attend- 
ing the college level courses to be 
olfered at Wheelus will gain residence 
credit from the University of Mary- 
land, or transfer credit to any other 
accredited U. S. college or university. 

Each course granting three hours' 
work will run for eight weeks meeting 
for three fifty minute periods on each 
of two nights per week. Only one 
course will be given at a time, that 
course to be taught by a. professor from 
the University of Maryland stationed 
at Wheelus Field for the purpose of 
teaching that individual course. 

The program initiated at Wheelus 
Field is an integral part of the Air 
Force-wide plan to increase the educa- 
tional level of Air Force officers and 
airmen through a project known as 
Operation Bootstrap. Establishment of 
College-level courses, potentially lead- 
ing to a college degree, is under way 
in both the Atlantic and Pacific areas. 
In the Atlantic area bases the college 
program is through the University of 
Maryland, and in the Pacific area 
through the University of California. 

Crosby Plugs Maryland 

Have you ever heard Bing Crosby, 

Fibber McGee, or Jack Benny on the 

air for the University of Maryland? 

Probably not, but it is an everyday oc- 

currence for American occupation per- 
sonnel in Europe, report Mr. and Mrs. 
David S. Sparks who have just re- 
turned to the College of Arts and Sci- 
ences after a year with the Maryland 
Program in Germany. Through the 
courtesy of the artists, their sponsors, 
and the Armed Forces Radio Service, 
the Armed Forces Network in Europe 
broadcasts top-flight commercial pro- 
grams and uses the time ordinarily de- 
voted to commercials to announce the 
course offerings, registration proced- 
ure, and other information about the 
University of Maryland in Germany. 

Mr. Sparks, who taught American 
and European history, and Mrs. 
Sparks, who taught Economics, were 
part of the first group of seven instruc- 
tors who went to Europe just a year 
ago to begin the program. "We went 
prepared to teach 400 students and our 
first enrollment was 1,800," remarked 
the Sparkses. After one short year 
the program has expanded to include 
nearly thirty instructors, a full admin- 
istrative staff, and student enrollment 
is in the neighborhood of 3,000. 

Both Mr. and Mrs. Sparks spoke of 
the splendid opportunity this program 
offers Maryland faculty for time to 
live and work abroad. Most of the 
Maryland faculty in Europe have been 
able to see something of all the coun- 
tries west of the Iron Curtain. Now 
that Maryland is in Tripoli, Trieste, 
and England, the faculty will live and 
learn among an ever wider range of 

Students enrolled in this program 
are largely military personnel but each 
class has a sprinkling of Red Cross, 
HICOG, and other civilians. The eag- 
erness with which students take ad- 
vantage of this opportunity for univer- 
sity work is heartwarming. Mr. 
Sparks remembered particularly an 
Air Force Sergeant who said "I can 
never thank Maryland enough. Before

President Byrd was recently guest 
speaker at a luncheon of University of 
Maryland Alumni now in military ser- 
vice in the Washington area. Col. 
Ralph I. Williams, '33 A&S, was toast- 
master for the occasion which brought 
together approximately fifty gradu- 
ates who are now officers of the vari- 
ous military branches. The group had 
also heard on a previous occasion of 
Lt. Gen. Elwood "Pete" Quesada '28.

Pharmacy Alumni Mixer, November 9th 

THE annual Pharmacy Alumni 
Mixer will l»e held at Cadoa Hall, 
in Baltimore, on Thursday evening, 
November 1'th, from 8 P. M. until 1 
A. M. 

In lieu of campus activity, the Phar- 
macy Alumni have undertaken to pro- 
vide a measure of social pleasure for 
the Pharmacy student body. The Mix- 
er is the first of such occasions for the 
current scholastic year. Each succeed- 
ing year has been more successful than 
the proceeding one, and the Mixer has 
become a popular event with both stu- 
dent and alumnus. 

The fraternities and sororities of the 
school compete in entertaining skits, 
and liberal prizes are awarded to the 
winners. After this feature, dance mu- 
sic is provided for the rest of the eve- 
ning. Refreshments are also served. 

The purpose of this affair is exactly 
what the term "Mixer" implies. Not 
only does it affoid the students a rec- 
reational evening, but it gives alumni 
and students an opportunity to MIX 
and get acquainted. To you old alumni, 
come on out, bring your wives or 
sweethearts, and have an evening of 

Cost? Absolutely nothing. The 
treat is on the Alumni Association of 
the School of Pharmacy. 

Frank Linton Black — Alumnus 
Frank Black, born and raised in Bal- 
timore, attended the public schools of 
the city and then entered the Maryland 
College of Pharmacy, graduating in 
the class of 1904, the 
same year the Col- 
lege was incorporat- 
ed into the Univer- 
sity of Maryland. 

Even before enter- 
ing Pharmacy 
School, Frank be- 
came associated with 
the firm of Hynson, 
Westcott & Dun- 
ning; then, and to 
this day, considered 

Frank L. Black one of thfi mQst Qut 

standing professional pharmacies of 
our country. He has been associated 
with this firm for fifty-one years and at 
present holds the position of vice-presi- 


Although connected with one of the 
busiest pharmacies in the city of Bal- 
timore, Frank has always taken a pro- 
found interest in all matter pharma- 
ceutical, not only of a local nature, bill 
also of a statewide and national scope. 
There is hardly a committee or office 
that he has not served, always efficient- 
ly and to the best interests of the 

His memberships past and present 
include: Past president of Pharmacy 

Alumni, having participated in re- 
organizing the alumni in 1926; Chair- 
man, Miscellaneous Division of the Na- 
tional Formulary; first president of the 
Baltimore Club of the Maryland Alum- 
ni; member of the Committee on the 
School of Pharmacy of the Maryland 
Pharmaceutical Associate; Committee 
on Public Relations. He is treasurer 
of both the Baltimore Retail Druggists 
Association and the "Maryland Phar- 
macist" publication. He is a Mason 
and a Shriner, and holds a life mem- 
bership in his lodge. 

His enthusiasm, wit, and kind under- 
standing are admired and the envy of 
his younger associates. Yes, Frank 
Linton Black, we salute you and toast 
your health, we value and cherish your 
association. May you long be an 

Pharmacy in Civil Defense 

Because of the devastating effects of 
the present day implements of war, 
civilian defense has become equally as 
important as the mechanics of the 
fighting man and his tactics in modern 
warfare. It is important to give atomic 
warfare serious consideration. Atomic 
bombing is so destructive that it could 
well be the deciding factor in the suc- 
cess or failure in the next major war, 
if it should become a reality. Key cit- 
ies and industries could be wiped out 
with its accompanying demoralizing 
effect on the civilian population. 

It is with this gruesome thought in 
mind that civilian defense is being 
planned and executed on a national 
scale, and Maryland is being organ- 
ized by Colonel David Mcintosh III. 

Howard L. Gordy of Salisbury, the 
president of the Maryland Pharmaceu- 
tical Association has appointed Sam- 
uel I. Raichlen to serve as chairman 
of the Committee of Pharmacy in Civil 
Defense. He in turn has appointed 
the following to serve in an advisory 
capacity: Dr. H. A. B. Dunning, Dr. 
Noel E. Foss, Dr. W. Arthur Purdum, 
A. J. Ogrinz, Jr., and Joseph Cohen. 
Chairman Raichlen has also appointed 
a pharmacist in each county of the 
State to cooperate with the county di- 
rector for civil defense. 

Pharmacy will come under the su- 
pervision of the Medical Aspects Com- 
mittee and will work as a team with all 
the other health groups, such as Medi- 
cine, Dentistry, etc. Pharmacy has 
already determined to what extent it 
can be useful and effective. It stands 
leady to perform its patriotic duty in 
whatever capacity it is called on. 

As definite plans and procedures are 
formulated every pharmacist and drug 
establishment will be properly in-

of Pharmacology, had charge of the 
program. The students were welcomed 
by Dr. Chapman, followed by a short 
history of the University of Maryland 
and of the School of Pharmacy in par- 
ticular. The heads of the departments 
were introduced and explained the 
courses they supervised. The teachers 

of the freshman class were presented 
and they in turn explained the courses 
the students would pursue for the ses- 
sion of 1950-51. The officers of the 
Student Council, of the Students' Aux- 
iliary of the Maryland Pharmaceutical 
Association, and of Kho Chi Society 
and Fraternities were introduced, after 
which in groups of some 7 to 10 the 
students, under the supervision of the 
officers mentioned above, were shown 
through the building. 

Dean Noel E. Foss attended the or- 
ganization meeting of the U. S. P, 
General Revision Committee in New

The future of such a structure now 

rests with the General Assembly, which 
will be asked to set up a University

act the school could float bonds to 
finance such a venture. 

If these plans proceed as expected tin-

The structure will be located near the 
entrance to new Byrd Stadium. Plans 
call for publication facilities, student

graduated from Washington College, 
Chestertown, Maryland, in 1949. 

Robert A. Bays, instructor in Ro- 
mance Languages, is a native of Tenn- 
essee. He received his B.A. in German 
from Emory University, Atlanta, Geor- 
gia, and his master's degree from Yale 
University. He was an acting instruc- 
tor in Romance Languages at the Uni- 
versity of Tennessee from 1945 to 1947. 
Mrs. Long, French

U. of M. in Mexico Next? 

Dr. Peter P. Lejins of the Sociology 
Department and Mr. David Sparks of 
the History Department, just returned 
to the College Park Campus from Eu- 
rope report that Maryland is the best- 
known American university on the 
other side of the Atlantic. Dr. Herbert 
A. Crosman, who spent the summer in 
Mexico doing research and surveying 
the remarkable progress which Mexico 
and the other Latin-American coun- 
tries have recently been making, finds 
the University very much less well- 
known in the land of our nearest neigh- 
bor to the south than it is in Europe. 
The prevailing opinion seems to be that 
it is located in Baltimore! 

Professor Crosman, who teaches 
Latin-American History, has been 
speculating of late upon the possibility 
of extending the "year-abroad" pro- 
gram to Latin-America. Mexico City 
has facilities similar to those of the 
European centers where Maryland stu-

Spanish compares in world importance

The influence of the United States 
in Latin-America which has been

lars not only provide welcome ex- 
change but insure the importation of 
quantities of American products. These

Mary Elizabeth Craig of Hyattsville. Md. (A&S) class of '51, University of Maryland, spent her 
1950 summer vacation working for the U. S. Savings Bonds Division of the Treasury Department 
in Washington, D. C. Here she proudly displays a few of the advertisements for Savings Bonds 
donated hy newspapers or sponsored by their advertisers during the Independence Drive. This 
photograph appears in scrapbooks of the Drive which will be presented to copper and steel com- 
panies all over the United States which sponsored the famous Liberty Bell replicas that toured the 
country during the Drive. It also is in the official scraphook of the Drive publicity that is now 
part of the Treasury archives. Mary Elizabeth is pledged to Delta Gamma, and is a Spanish major. 

emissaries, for they make friends, 
spread our culture, and contribute to 
hemisphere solidarity. Along: with 
American goods our southern neigh- 
bors import other things — football, 
baseball, scientific and production 
"know-how", to mention a few at ran- 
dom. By such means do amity and 
mutual trust grow. 

Mexico plays host to thousands of 
American students each year. Her 
national university, located in Mex- 
ico City, offers degrees which are rec- 
ognized in the United States; and the 
summer school gives courses, many of 
them taught by leading specialists 
from our country, which are accepted 
for transfer by most of our colleges. 
Mexico City is also the home of the 
only American University in Latin- 
America — Mexico City College. This 
institution which offers the standard 
American college curriculum, has an 
enrollment of a thousand students 
most of whom are from the United 
States. Arrangements such as those 
which Maryland has with European 
Universities could lie made with either 
or both of these institutions. 

No one who has ever been to Mexico 
has ever been quite the same again; 
and of course, a visit to a foreign land 
is the only way that one can come 
really to know a foreign culture. Mex- 
ico is a world leader in painting and 


many students go there to study art. 
There were in operation within the 
borders of Mexico last summer at least 
a dozen art schools patronized by 
Americans. Professor James P. Whar- 
ton, Head of the Art Department at 
College Park, who spent part of his 
summer in Mexico bathing in the glor- 
ies of her incomparable masterpieces, 
ancient and modern, has not yet stopped 
talking about Mexico. 

Perhaps we can look forward to the 
day when we shall be able to offer a 
"year abroad" in Latin-America to 
the students of this burgeoning Uni- 
versity where nothing seems impos- 

New Advisory Service 

An improvement over the old faculty 
advisor system went into effect in Aits 
and Sciences. 

Instead of being assigned to a large 
number of unselected faculty members 
to whom advising is merely an inci- 
dental chore, freshmen and sophomores 
were introduced to a small group of 
trained and selected counselors who 
scheduled individual conferences with 
each student. 

Nine faculty members were chosen 
for this work after having completed 
training to aid them as advisors. Dr. 
Leon P. Smith, Dean of the college, 
developed the new program which is 

supervised by Charles Manning, Asso- 
ciate Dean. 

Each counselor advises students 
whose general areas of academic inter- 
est are the same as those in which the 
counselor has specialized. The same 
counselor advises a student through 
both of the student's years as a lower 
classman and until he has made a de- 
cision on his major subject for his 
upper division studies. 

Students intending to go on to be- 
come doctors, nurses, dentists and law- 
yers will benefit particularly from the 
new program. They will be assigned 
advisors who know the special problems 
in the professional fields and who are 
familial' with the academic require- 
ments of the various professional 

The changes in the college's advisory 
program were made both because they 
improved the quality of direction the 
student will receive and because the 
younger post-war students need more 
help in plotting their studies than the 
older ex-GI's required. 

At University of Delaware 

To promote expansion of Delaware's 
fisheries, the University of Delaware 
has appointed Dr. L. Eugene Cronin, 
Maryland A. & S., M.S. '42; Ph.D. '46, 
marine biologist, to its faculty. His 
appointment followed requests by the 
fishing interests of the state, including 
both commercial and sports fishermen, 
that the university take the lead in 
marine biological research. 

Dr. Cronin, who has been with the 
Chesapeake Biological Laboratory at 
Solomons, Maryland, for the past seven 
years, will divide his efforts along 
three lines: Training in marine biology 
(he will offer a course in this field in 
the coming term at the University of 
Delaware); effective research toward 
restoration of the fisheries; and under- 
taking and sponsoring fundamental re- 
search in marine and estuarine prob- 
lems. He will have the rank of asso- 
ciate professor of biology. 

An informal committee on tidewater 
marine development was organized in 
June under the chairmanship of M. 
Haswell Pierce of Milford, with repre- 
sentation of sports fishermen and com- 
mercial fishermen. The University of 
Delaware is represented on this com- 
mittee by George M. Worrilow (Mary- 
land '27) assistant director of agri- 
cultural extension and research. More 
recently, Gov. Elbert N. Carvel ap- 
pointed an advisory committee to the 
Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Com- 
mission, again with Mr. Pierce as 
chairman. Professor Kakavas repre- 
sents the university on this group. 

The two committees have cooperated 
in the arrangements which brought Dr. 
Cronin to Delaware.

Military Activities 

THE School of Dentistry ROTC 
unit has begun its third year with 
an enrollment of 127 attending classes 
in Military Science and Tactics: 14 
seniors, 31 juniors, 44 sophomores and 
38 freshmen. In addition to this group 
there are 24 seniors who have com- 
pleted the training requirements and 
are expected to receive reserve commis- 
sions upon their graduation. There are 
also 15 juniors who have completed the 
theory course but have not completed 
the required summer camp assignment. 

Besides the 166 students in the 
ROTC group there are 17 men who 
hold commissions as Second Lieuten- 
ants in the Army and Air Force Senior 
Dental Programs. The total of 183 stu- 
dents associated with the military pro- 
grams now being conducted at the 
school means that 45% of the student 
enrollment have expressed in a very 
practical manner the measure in which 
they have accepted their responsibili- 
ties as potential professional men 
whose services will be highly accept- 
able to their country's pressing mili- 
tary needs. 

The ROTC unit is commanded by 
Major John L. Campbell, D. C, U.S.A., 
who succeeds Lieutenant Colonel Fred- 
erick H. Richardson, the first com- 
mander of the unit. Major Campbell 
obtained his predental training at In- 
diana University and received his den- 
tal degree from Indiana in 1939. He 
spent the following year in an intern- 
ship at the Columbia Presbyterian 
Medical Center, New York City. Dur- 
ing his ten years of service in the 
United States Army he served 31 
months in the Southwest Pacific The- 
atre of Operations. His tour of duty 
included assignments to the O'Reilly, 
Army and Navy, Oliver and Hallaron 
general hospitals; and the Fort Bragg 
and Fort Benning station hospitals. 
Major Campbell completed the Ad- 
vanced Course in Dentistry at the 
Army Medical Center in January-April, 
1950. In addition to his duties as Pro- 
fessor of Military Science and Tactics, 
he is doing graduate work in Oral Sur- 

Major Campbell is assisted by Ser- 
geant Vern M. Hostbjor, who came to 
this unit from an assignment at Col- 
lege Park, and Master Sergeant Leo 
Hirsch, highly regarded by all the stu- 
dents who have served in the unit since 
its inception in 1948. 

Man of Many Hobbies 
Back in 1935 the School of Dentistry 
graduated a lad from Torrington Con- 
necticut. Dr. John Joseph Houlihan 
had earned the high regard of his 
teachers because of the excellent 
standard of his clinical work. His per- 
sonal qualities earned for him the ad- 

miration and respect of his classmates. 
It is evident from the writeup in the 
1935 "Mirror" that some member of 
the class did an accurate job of analyz- 
ing the capabilities of his subject: "His 
interests are varied. When it's den- 
tistry it's dentistry, when it's opera 
it's opera; but whatever he does, he 
does well and with all his heart." The 
fifteen years of Dr. Houlihan's profes- 
sional life reveal a faithful adherence 
to that pattern of dentistry supple- 
mented by his active interest many 

Dr. Houlihan's favorite pastime is 
the bleeding and training of racing 
pigeons. He has been racing pigeons 
ever since he was a little fellow. The 
owner of 65 birds, he is a member of 
the American Racing Pigeon Union 
and of the Northern Connecticut Com- 
bine. One of his prize birds has flown 
seven 500-mile races and has won two. 

Since 1942 Dr. Houlihan has held a 
pilot's license. He has his own airfield, 
Tor-Win, which he built across the 
road from his house. Eleven planes 
are hangared there, six of which are 
his own. 

A hobby of more recent vintage is 
painting. Dr. Houlihan's interest in 
this field of art began during World 
War II. While visiting exhibits of 
paintings that had been sent to this 
country by English collectors who 
wished to protect their treasures from 
the probable results of German bombing 
efforts, Dr. Houlihan purchased sev- 
eral paintings, each by a famous artist. 
Having become enthusiastic over his 
original purchases, Dr. Houlihan de- 
cided to add to his collection by annu- 
ally purchasing a good painting. The 
Houlihan collection includes several 
widely recognized masterpieces: "Por- 
trait of Coventry Patmore" by John 
Singer Sargent; "Miss Effie Watkins 
with Cat" by Sir Joshua Reynolds; 
"Portrait of a Carthusian Monk" (c. 
1650) by Bartholome Murillo; "The 
Woodchopper" by George Innis; "Por- 
trait of Richard Brinsley Sheridan" by 
John Oppie; and "Portrait of Anne 
Dalzell" by Sir Henry Raeburn. 

Inspired by the presence in his home 
of such excellent examples of the art 
of painting, Dr. Houlihan soon began 
to exercise a predilection for trying 
his hand at another avocation. Al- 
though self-tauglu, he has demonstrat- 
ed an ability that has developed over 
the years into an impressive talent. In 
1949 he served as president of the 
Torrington Artists group. Now in its 
third year, this group presents an an- 
nual art exhibit in the Torrington City 
Hall auditorium which attracts several 
thousand visitors. A painting by Dr. 
Houlihan on a circus theme was an 
outstanding feature of the 1949 ex- 
hibit. Still another hobby of the 
strenuously avocative Dr. Houlihan is 
sculpturing. Only a year old it is in 
the "newly found talent" stage of de- 

After four years of service in the 
armed forces Dr. Houlihan returned to 
his former practice in Torrington. The 
Houlihan home in Winchester was built 
in 1764 by the second settler of the 
town. John met his wife, Virginia,

Hazel Tuemmler 

Hazel Tuemmler 

Hazel Tuemmler graduated in 1929, 
after which she went to Columbia 
University and received her Master's 
degree in Speech. She taught at the 
Lincoln School for awhile and then at 
the University of Maryland. 

She married Charles Leroy Mackert 
in 1931 and moved back to College 
Park. "Mack" was 
Director of the Col- 
lege o f Physical 
Education at the 
the University at 
that time. A son, 
"Mack, Junior", 
was born to them 
i n 1932. After 
"Mack's" death in 
1942 Hazel returned 
to teaching in the 
Speech Department 
for a short time. 
She married Fred Tuemmler, Director 
of Planning for the State of Maryland 
and attached to the National Capital 
Park Planning Commission. 

Hazel has always been in close touch 
with the Alumni and Alumni affairs, as 
her home and interests have been close- 
ly associated with the University. In 
1946 she was elected one of a nine- 
member Alumni Board of Directors of 
the University who were charged with 
the problem of reorganizing the Alum- 
ni set-up. They decided to organize 
each of the eleven colleges of the Uni- 
versity separately. Hazel went into 
the College of Home Economics to 
work with Dean Mount in establishing 
the Association there. She was asked 
to become a member of the Home Eco- 
nomics Association and was elected its 
first Chairman. She has served in 
that capacity for the past three years. 
The College of Home Economics feels 
that she has done outstanding work in 
cooperation with Dean Mount and the 
various Board members. 

We have seen the development of an 
extremely enthusiastic Association for 
the establishment of many worthwhile 
projects, including the Spring Reunion, 
the Annual Alumni Award to the out- 
standing Home Economics Senior, 
Alumni Certificates to outstanding for- 
mer Home Economics graduates. Re- 
cently, the Alumni Association has in- 
augurated a very successful sale of 
metal picture trays and waste baskets, 
to secure funds to aid needy Home 
Economics students. This is to be a 
permanent sale of these products, 
showing views of the Home Economics 
Building and the Rosshorough Inn. The 
Association has also made a modest 
beginning toward carrying on a State 
Home Economics recruitment program, 
to keep outstanding students coming 
into the College of Home Economics, a 
program for acquainting undergradu- 
ates with Alumni work and the keeping 
of a permanent scrapbook.

Air Cadet Robert G. Mathey, of Mt. Rainier, Mil., checks with drill instructors to line up his 
senior year in Maryland's Air Force ROTC, largest in the country. Stan* Sergeant Gordon L. Mackey 
and Technical Sergeant Paul D. Barnes point out what Cadet Captain Mathey must do if he is to 
earn his reserve commission. 


THE Military Department, al- 
though far removed and rather re- 
motely connected with the present 
emergency, nevertheless has felt the 
impact of the present world situation. 
This is evidenced in many different 
ways, primarily by an increase in the 
Corps of Cadets from 1,657 as of May 
last to a present 2,100. There has 
been a tremendous freshman enroll- 
ment. These figures have increased 
from 763 to 1,050. However, the real 
impact is felt in the Advanced courses. 
Whereas there were 120 first-year Ad- 
vanced students enrolled last semester, 
there are now 215 first-year Advanced. 
There are many factors involved in 
this rapid increase. The Air Force has 
instituted an accelerated program de- 
signed to obtain technically qualified 
junior officers in the engineering fields. 
This has been accomplished by permit- 
ting seniors in the College of Engineer- 
ing, who are otherwise qualified, to en- 
roll in an acceleiated program, which 
consists of two semesters of Advanced 
AF ROTC, plus one summer camp ses- 
sion. At the end of this period they 
will be offered second lieutenant's com- 
missions in the USAFR. This last is, 
of course, in keeping with the current 
Air Force desire to obtain junior offi- 
cers in the technical fields immediately. 
In addition, students in their sopho- 
more year, who were otherwise quali- 
fied and who had veteran status, were 
permitted to enroll in the regular Ad- 
vanced AF ROTC course from all col- 
leges. This again was in keeping with 
the Air Force trend toward obtainment 
of college trained junior officers. 

It cannot be emphasized too greatly 
that one of the major sources of pro- 
curement of officers arises from the 
ROTC programs at the various colleges 
and universities throughout the coun- 
try, particularly those having an Air 
Force program in effect. 

The first public showing of this ex- 
panded Corps was at the Homecoming 
football game, October 21, at which 
time the entire Corps marched into the 
stadium, performed certain maneuvers 
and then marched to their seats where 
they formed the backdrop for the card 
program at half-time. 


The University of Maryland School 
of Law awarded the 1950 Louis S. Ash- 
man Scholarship to Joseph P. Alcarese, 
"a veteran whose time under the GI Bill 
has expired and who is married with 
two small children; he led his class 
scholastically during the year 1949-50" 
— as Roger Howell, dean of the Law 
School, informed Mr. Ashman. 

As shown in the current catalog of 
the University of Maryland School of 
Law, the Louis S. Ashman Scholarship 
was founded at the Law School in 1922 
with the "royalties to be received from 
the publication" of his then pending 
law book — "in order to provide a fund 
for the establishment of scholarships 
for a student or students recommended 
annually by the Faculty Council as 
worthy to receive the same by reason 
of scholarly attainments and the need 
for financial assistance in pursuing the 
study of law." 


S^c/ioot Of 


Rotary International Official 

J MORRIS REESE, of Baltimore, 
• Md., University of Maryland 
(School of Medicine, 1920) is a District 
Governor of Rotary International, world- 
wide service organization, for 1950-51. 
As Governor, he 
will coordinate the 
activities of 41 Ro- 
tary Clubs in the 
District of Colum- 
bia and Maryland. 
During the year, he 
will visit each of 
the Clubs to offer 
advice and assist- 
ance in Rotary ser- 
vice work and ad- 

Dr. Reese is a 
physician in Balti- 
more, and is Associ- 
r>r. Reese ate Professor of Ob- 

stetrics at the University of Maryland 
School of Medicine. He is a member 
of the Advisory Council of the Balti- 
more chapter of the Nu Sigma Nu 
Fraternity, the oldest Medical Frater- 
nity in the United States. Attending 
Obstetrician at the University and Bon 
Secours Hospitals in Baltimore, he is 
also a visiting obstetrician and consul- 
tant in obstetrics at several other hos- 
pitals. He is Associate Chief Examiner 
of the National Board of Medical Ex- 
aminers, and a Fellow of the American 
College of Surgeons and the American 
Medical Association. He has been a 
member of the Rotary Club of Towson, 
Maryland, since 1928, and is a Past 
President of that club. 

With the continued growth of Rotary 
in all parts of the world, membership 
in Rotary International is now at an 
all-time high, with 342.000 business 
and professional executives active in 
7,155 Rotary Clubs in 83 countries and 
geographical regions. 

One of Rotary's principal objectives 
is the promotion of international un- 
derstanding, good will and peace. Ro- 
tary Clubs around the world are mak- 
ing many contributions toward the 
achievement of this goal, one of the 
most far-reaching being the program 
of Rotary Foundation Fellowsh ; ps, 
which enable outstanding graduate stu- 
dents to study abroad. 

Since this program was inaugurated 
in 1947, the Fellowships have been 
awarded to 195 young men and women 
in 35 countries of Europe, Asia, Africa 
and North and South and Central 
America. Grants for the one-year Fel- 
lowships range from $1,800 to $3,400, 
and to date total nearly $500,000. 
These Rotary Fellows have proved 
themselves to be unusually effective 
ambassadors of good will, both in the 
countries in which they have studied 
and in their own countries following 
their year of study.

Mrs. Brasher 

Gone to Texas 

This will be the last column conducted by Mary Sealock 
Brasher, pictured at the left. Mrs. Brasher is leaving for 
Texas, where her husband, Jim Brasher, former Maryland 
football center, who played on the Senior All Star team at 
Jacksonville last season, holds a position as coach at Robert 
Lee School, San Angelo, Texas. 

Mrs. Brasher graduated in June of 1950 front the College 
of Arts and Sciences. A familiar figure on the campus in 
recent years Mrs. Brasher, gracious, charming and helpful to 
many alumni, faculty and students, has been employed in 
various University offices and will be missed by her many 
friends. — H. L. M. 

Rosalie Leslie 

By Ginny Truitt 
(In the Diamond Back) 

THE chief topic of conversation in 
sorority houses and dormitories, 
as Maryland women settled down to 
rigors of registration was the depar- 
ture of Miss Rosalie Leslie, assistant 
dean of women, friend and advisor of 
the University's coeds. 

During the eight years which Miss 
Leslie has devoted to Maryland she has 
come to play an increasingly important 
role, not so great in the mechanics of 
administration as in the cultural, spiri- 
tual, and social aspect of guidance. 

It was through her leadership that 
the International Club, organized to 
bring together the different nationali- 
ties represented on campus, was cre- 
ated. Under her sponsorship, too, came 
the Cosmopolitan Club, and she served 
as advisor to University of Maryland 
Mortar Board. In addition, Miss Leslie 
presided over the meetings of the 
Washington, D. C. Mortar Board 
Alumni Association. 

As chairman of the Religious Life 
Committee, Miss Leslie supervised the 
annual Religious Emphasis Week. A 
member of Student Life Committee, 
she worked in the capacity of social di- 
rector for this group. 

Although the name, "Miss Leslie" is 
no longer the correct one (her married 
name being Mrs. Charles Anthony Lo- 
reto) our ex-assistant dean of women 
prefers that her Maryland friends use 
her former name during the month she 
remained to advise her successor. At 
the completion of this period she will 
return to her husband, who is a civic 
judge in New York and her new home 
in that city. Judjje Loreto is a gradu- 
nf Columbia University and Col- 
umbia Law School. 

The story of Miss Leslie's marriage 
is exciting enough to alert the best of 
romantic writers. She met her hus- 
band-to-be in England during her trip 
there in the summer of nineteen forty- 


nine. During the year that elapsed be- 
tween their meeting and their mar- 
riage, she made known to almost no 
one their friendship and their engage- 

Miss Leslie and Judge Loreto were 
married on the fifteenth of July and 
spent their honeymoon in Bermuda.

Terps 25, Hoyas 14 

On October 14th 25 to 14 was the 
tally in the Terps' win over Georgetown 
at Griffith Stadium. On the same date, 
before the game, Grantland Rice, re- 
garded by many as the successor to 
Walter Camp as a grid expert, stated : 
"Army, Stanford, California, S.M.U., 
I '■ -as, Cornell and possibly, Princeton 
are in the front rank. Yet we doubt if 
any of those teams today could beat 
Maryland, the team that wrecked Mich- 
igan State. A query came in asking me 
to name the best three teams. This 
doesn't make much sense. Certainly 
Maryland arid Kentucky would be two 
of them. How can Maryland let Geor- 
gia run over her and then run over 
Michigan State while Georgia can't 
i r(n beat weak St. Mary's? I don't 
believe Georgia could ever beat Mary- 
land again." 

Well, if it stumps Granny Rice, and 
after seeing Maryland, predicted to 
turn Georgetown every way but loose, 
make it only one touchdown better 
than the Hoyas, we'll leave the football 
pickings to some combination fortune 
teller, sooth-sayer Roman haruspex, i. e., 
provided he has a divining rod in one 
hand, a crystal ball in the other and 
his pockets full of tea leaves. 

True, Maryland made 18 first downs 
to Georgetown's 9, and rushed 342 
yards to the Hoyas' 40. But the score 
board showed 3 touchdowns to 2. The 
Terps dominated the game throughout. 
They were a good team having a bad 
day. "Too chesty after last week," said 
some. "Georgetown's playing over 
their own heads," added others. 

The Hoyas, for their homecoming 
game, played inspired ball. They also 
got plenty of the breaks. On the other 
hand they made good 17 of 30 passes, 
mostly short, bullet shots, with Mary- 
land's defense faulty in that depart- 

At the kick off Maryland moved 50 
yards in 6 plays. It looked like the 
predicted romp. A penalty stopped 
the Terps and a field goal failed. 

A good punt set the Terps on their 
own 5. Shemonski tossed a 45 yard 
pass for a spectacular catch by Kar- 
nash and the Terps' Fullerton scored. 
Georgetown seemed relatively immo- 
bile at this juncture but Maryland 
fumbled on the Hoyas' 48 and those 
short passes put Georgetown over to 
tie the score. 

The Terps came back clawing in the 
second. Runs by Shemonski and passes 
from him to Augsburger moved the 
Terps up again when a wide lateral 
from Scarbath to Shemonski saw the 
latter score. It was 14 to 7 at the 
half, Terps ahead. 

In the third, the Terps were twice 
stopped in the shadow of the Hoya 
goal posts but Ward smeared George- 
town's Mattingly in their own end zone 
for 2 points and Georgetown's kicker, 
Palotte, stepped over the line to give 
the Terps 2 more markers, making it 
18 to 7 after the third. 

In the fourth Maryland bucked for a 
first down on fourth down and lost the 


ball. A Georgetown pass was good 
and Pagliucci bulled over for the 
Hoyas' second and final score. 

Georgetown made a desperate at- 
tempt to score again but lost the ball 
when Alderton fell on a fumble and 
minutes later Scarbath scored to make 
it 25 to 14. 

There was no doubt about which was 
the better team with Scarbath going 
all the way at quarterback, albeit he 
was nailed from behind on several oc- 
casions. With their speedy and daring 
laterals working the Jim Tatum's crew 
had speed, surprise, class and brains. 
For the day at least they just lacked 
the punch that definitely indicated they 
were not the team that took Michigan 
State only a week previously. 

Television scored its usual impact in 
educating the sports following public 
to "take it for free or not at all." Only 
8,869, including Georgetown students 
and Homecomers, saw the game. That's 
10,000 less than saw the same two 
teams at College Park last year. TV's 
free shows gave you Army-Michigan, 
Navy-Princeton, Penna-Dartmouth and

Bulldogs 27; Terps 7 

Costly fumbles were the chief con- 
tributions to Georgia's 27 to 7 victory 
over Maryland in the season's opener 
at Athens, Ga. 

The scoreboard showed the Bulldogs 
three touchdowns ahead of the Terra- 
pins and the record indicates three 
Georgia touchdowns set up by Mary- 
land fumbles. 

After the first half some mighty fine 
things were said about the Terp team 
but then someone threw the custard 
pie into the electric fan and the Terps 
just didn't come up to predictions. Five 
times they fumbled. Five times Geor- 
gia recovered. 

Jim Tatum's lads were not helped 
any by the 85 degree temperature after 
the week of cold rain that cut down 
their practice sessions at College Park. 

In the first period Lynn Davis bob- 
bled a punt on the 26 yard line. Geor- 
gia's Brinson fell on it. A few plays 
later a short pass scored for the Bull- 
dogs. The kick was good. Georgia 7; 
Maryland 0. 

In the second period, Quarter Scar- 
bath did outstanding work for Mary- 
land negotiating 54 yards in seven 
plays with Shemonski skirting the 
starboard end to make it 7 up. 

In the first half Maryland looked like 
a real ball club, gaining 96 yards to 
Georgia's 53. The Terps made good 
on 5 of 10 passes to outdistance the 
Bulldogs 58 yards to 25. 

Then came the disastrous second halt 
with everything K<'i"K wrong while the 
Bulldogs proved to he the type of alert 
team against which there is no room 
for miscues. As fast and as soon as 
the College Parkers dropped the mar- 
bles, Georgia picked them up. A -14 
yard pass was good at the Terp's 3-yard 
line. Three times the Maryland line 
held, but on the fourth down the Hull- 
dogs broke through. Georgia 14; 
Maryland 7. 

Shemonski grabbed a punt, raced to 
his own 34 yard line and lost the ball 
when an avalanche of Georgians hit 
him. Four plays later the score was 
Georgia 20: Maryland 7, as the lat- 
ter blocked the attempted conversion. 

De Stefano let the ball get away on 
his own 29. Georgia fell on it and 
banged it down to the 3 yard line. A 
few plays later it again hit pay dirt. 
The kick was good and the final score 
was 27 to 7. 

Mighty Mo Modzelewski was the 
day's top performer over the ground, 
gaining GO yards. Ward, Krouse, Row- 
den, Wingate and Gierula turned in 
top-hole jobs for Maryland but the 
backfield bobbies invited the bad news. 

Maryland, as Coach Jim Tatum re- 
peatedly warned, wasn't ready for a 
team as tough as Georgia, but it could 
have won had it held onto the ball. 

Johnny Scarbath did a commendable 
and at times exceptional job for a 
sophomore making his debut in such 
fast company.

Crystal Gazers 

Ray Krouse, University of Maryland 
left tackle, was selected for the Amer- 
ican Legion's Probable All American 
team, it was announced in an article, 
"Football Forecast for '50," by Ed 
Fitzgerald, in the September issue of 
"The American Legion Magazine." 

Other "probables" named by Fitz- 
gerald were *Dan Foldberg, Army left 
end; Bud McFadin, Texas left guard; 
Leon Root, Rutgers, center; Mike Bol- 
din, Pitt, right guard; Bob Toneff, 
Notre Dame, right tackle; Vito Ragazzo, 
William and Mary, right end; Bob Wil- 
liams, Notre Dame, quarterback; Kyle 
Rote, Southern Methodist, left half- 
back; Chuck Ortmann, Michigan, right 
halfback; Johnny Dottley, Mississippi, 

Commenting on the tackle positions 
Fitzgerald wrote, "There are three out- 
standing candidates — Ray Krouse of 
Maryland, Bob Toneff of Notre Dame 
and Bob Gain of Kentucky. Holland 
Donan, of Princeton, is a nifty tackle, 
too, but he'll have a hard time compet- 
ing with the publicity that will accrue 
to his better-placed rivals. Krouse and 
Toneff win the nod from our scouts. 
These two tackles are big and strong 
and fast enough to do the job well." 

Referring to the Southern Confer- 
ence, Fitzgerald's Legion article has 
this to say, "Maryland won this title 
last year without playing either of the 
conference titans, Duke and North 
Carolina. This year the Terps play 
both the hot shots — and will win again. 
Jim Tatum is loaded for bear. Watch 
Ed Modzelewski and Ray Krouse." 

He Likes Ward 

The Saturday Evening Post also 
registered a pre-season high on Ta- 
tum's Terps, picking Maryland as the 
probable No. 10 team of the nation and 
tabbing Maryland's dynamic Jersey- 
man, Bob Ward, as All-American tim- 

Fred Russell, Satevepost's pigskin 
haruspex, dwelling on probable great 
football teams and individual stars for 
1950, takes a gamble in predicting the 
probable All-American line-up like 
this: — 



A CLASSIC example of the old 
axiom, applicable to any 
branch of sports, "You can't afford 
to make mistakes against GOOD 
opposition," was served ^^p in De- 
troit a few weeks ago. 

Laurent Dauthille, classy and 
good-looking young French boxer 
opposed Jake LaMotta, world mid- 
dleweight champion. 

Going into the 15th and final 
round, Dauthille was 23 points 
ahead, with the tvorld's title right 
in his hand. 

The bout had 20 seconds to go, 
when Dauthille coming off of the 
ropes, dropped his right hand 
JUST ONCE. Just once in 15 
rounds! Just once was enough. 
That's all there was. There wasn't 
any more. 

Through the gloom that settled 
over Montmartre came the old, old 
adage, "You can't afford to make 
mistakes against good opposition." 

It holds on the football field, the 
diamond, the tennis and basketball 
courts as well as in the roped 
arena. — H. L. M.

are : —

Contemplating football in the South 
the Satevepost expert writes: — 

"Southern Conference Champion: 

"Runners-Up: Duke, North Carolina. 

"Above Average: Virginia, William 
and Mary, Clemson, Wake Forest, 
South Carolina, North Carolina State, 
George Washington. 

"Maryland has maturity (flic start- 
ers average twenty-one), over-all ex- 
perience (seventeen of twenty-seven 
returning httcrmen are seniors) and a 
scoring wallop (rival elevens totaled 
eighty-three points in one spring intra- 
squad skirmish). It also has a strenu- 
ous schedule, with Georgia, Navy and 
Michigan State as the first three op- 
ponents. Still, there's time for locomo- 
tive Mighty Mo Modzelewski to refuel 
before the crucial conference battles

Other Pre-Season Quotes 

Pre-season quotes from the "Illustra- 
ted Football Annual," "You can't play 
the T-formation with a wooden nickel in 
the quarterback slot and this might be 
the only gimmick in the Jim Tatum 
plans for the team he promised Mary- 
land for 1950. . . . That is the key, but 
as the lock turns, the whole blasted 
door is liable to fall on football oppo- 
nents of the Terps." 

"Maryland, an upstart as these Dixie 
football matters go, has the best team 
in its history, with Big Jim Tatum, 
the finest coach in the land, doing the

with our country but there ain't any- 
thing wrong with it that Stalin can 
cure, just as there was nutkin' wrong 
with it that Hitler could fix."

jHome and home. 

Bill O'Brien, hard hitting ex-Marine 
Corps 145 pounder, a stand out on last 
year's squad, has re-entered the Marine 
Corps due to the Korean emergency. 
He is a Marine Corps reservist and 
expects to return to College Park when 
the tumult and the shouting dies. 

Charley Fuller, who was a candidate 
for the 175 pound spot, has joined the 
Navy. Charley, who won the Alper- 
stein cup for the outstanding intra- 
mural boxer, did not compete last year 
due to being a transfer student from 
Miami University. 

Trying for this year's squad will be 
Al Glass, Jackie Letzer, 125; Andy 
Quattrocchi, Paul Kostopoulos, Spencer 
Hopkins, 130-135; Barney Lincoln and 
Buddy Seymour, 145; Bob Theofield. 
Jim Harryman and Don Oliver, Jim 
Ruckert, 155; Paul Oliver, Ken Davis. 
165; Calvin Quinstedt, 175; Mont 
Whipp and George Fuller, Unlimited. 


VARSITY soccer practice has 
started under Coach Doyle Royal. 
The booters, stripped of ten letter 
men from last year's squad and re- 
membering last year's fine 8-2 record, 
were anxiously looking toward the sea- 
son's opener with Washington and Lee 
on October 13. 

Royal has a nucleus of well seasoned 
veterans around which to build his 
attack. Jim Belt, 
two time All Amer- 
ican, and newly 
elected Captain of 
this year's team, 
along with To m 
Bourne, Bob Bute- 
horn, Tommy Cox, 
Roland Kinder, 
Claude Robinson, Ed 
Rowan, Jimmy Sav- 
age, and Eugene 
Volpe, are the boys 
returning from last 
year's squad. 

In spite of the 

lack of Strong Vet- 
Coach Royal eran strength, sev- 
eral boys coming up from last year's 
Frosh squad are good prospects. Steve 
Augenbaugh, Angel Carnevale, Bill 
Fell, Bob Krebs, Jim Varela, and Dave 
Williams will be out to cop the vacated 

Pre-season dope indicates that the 
Terps would have their most trouble 
against Penn State, 1 !)49 National 
Champions, and North Carolina, run- 
ners-up in the Southern Conference 
last year. Newcomer Connecticut also 
demands respect. The Northerns were 
National Champs in 1948. Loyola, 
leaders in the Mason Dixon Conference, 
is another team to watch. 


Coach Jim Kehoe's Maryland track- 
men took five of the first seven places 
to beat Navy in a five-mile cross-coun- 
try contest. The score, 21 points for 
Maryland to 34 for Navy, (low score 

Two Terps just a shade apart, came 
in first on the "clear and fast" course 
in 21 minutes and 45 seconds. The 
three other men on the Maryland team 
came in 5th, 6th, and 7th in a three 
way tie.

If you admire the stuff needed to 
make good athletes you'll get a bang 
out of the little shaver who received a 
pair of roller skates for Christmas. He 
fell in more positions than the Penta- 
gon janitor has keys. After a particu- 
larly vicious tumble the little fellow's 
mother suggested, "Bobby, don't you 
think you'd better sit down for a while 
and watch the bigger boys skate?" 

"No, mother," replied the lad, tears 
welling in his eyes, "Santa Claus 
brought me these to learn how on; not 
to quit on!" 

("It's not the dog that's in the fight 
that counts but rather the fight that's 
in the dog.") 


Head Trainer Duke Wyre added to 
his fame last summer. After receiving 
a plaque for outstanding service as the 
President of the Southern Conference 
Trainers Association, the Terps hust- 
ling trainer attended the National 
Conference in Kansas City only to re- 
turn as a member of the National Ex- 
ecutive Board. What with being chosen 
outstanding trainer in the East last

goals to conquer for the Terrapin's ac-

The varsity football squad makes ready for the day's action. 

Association and hopes to have a part 
in making homecoming and other af- 
fairs during the 1950-51 term the best 

Also the Club has taken over the re- 
sponsibility of keeping pep rallies from 
getting out of hand and the big one 
before the Navy game on September 
28 not only was spirited and colorful 
but was extremely orderly. 
Help Orient Frosh 

One of the major projects of the 
Club is showing movies of the football 
games that are played away from 
home and when the grid season is end- 
ed it is planned to display the films of 
any other sports that are available. 

The Club started its 1950-51 activi- 
ties by helping to orient the freshman 





MARYLAND'S campus "M" Club, 
the lettermen's chapter of the 
general alumni organization is making 
a bid for a real place of service at Col- 
lege Park, and in so doing is anxious 
to help out in any activity where it 
may be useful. 

It stands solidly behind the Alumni 
"M" Club and the Student Government

during registration week. It showed 
movies of the Gator Howl game of last 
January 2 when Maryland defeated 
Missouri 20-7 at Jacksonville, Florida 
and President Ear] Thomson and Sec- 
retary Bill Brockmeyer also made brief 
talks at the Dean of Men's gathering. 

In addition to supporting the Home- 
coming Dance after the North Carolina 
State contest on October 21, the Club 
looked forward to its own prom, which 
will he held in the new Armory follow- 
ing the final football game of the sea- 
son against Virginia Tech in new Byrd 
Stadium on December 2. Members of 
the Virginia Tech team will be the 
honored guests. 

The Club, too, is looking ahead to do- 
ing its bit toward making the Spring 
Carnival its usual pretentious and suc- 
cessful event. 

Promoting Fellowship 

Last and not least of the objective 
of the Club is to bring the Old Line 
athletes closer together off the field 
and to promote sportsmanship in the 
student body. It also is planned to 
have outstanding figures in the sports 
world address the Club. 

President Thomson, who hails from 
Annapolis, is the son of Earl Thomson, 
noted track coach at the Naval Acad- 
emy. He managed the 1949-50 Terp 
track team. Secretary Brockmeyer, 
whose home is at Sevevna Park, was 
the efficient manager of the last two 
lacrosse teams. 

Pete Augsburger, the tall and husky 
pass-catching football end from Pitts- 
burgh, is vice-president, and the treas- 
urer, Lou Phoebus of Baltimore, should 
be able to grapple with the money 
problem as he is one of the leading 
members of the wrestling squad. 

If the aggressive Thomson and his 
cohorts come close to realizing their 
objectives they will offer not only a 
real task but a great incentive for the 
campus "M" Club leaders who follow

Big enough for the job 

We live in a big country and it takes 
a big telephone system to give good service 
to millions of people. 

The Bell System is equipped to handle 
today's more important job because it has 
never stopped growing. It has kept right 
on building to make service better and 
provide more of it. 

Times like these emphasize the bene- 

fits of such growth and the value of a 
strong, healthy telephone company to 
serve the Nation's needs. 

The Bell System aims to be big in more 
than size. 

It aims to be big in the conduct of the 
business — in its plans for the future — in 
doing its full part in helping to keep 
America secure.

ONCE again ;i world partly at war 
and partly in fear of war and its 
incident cruelties, slaughter and heart- 
aches, pauses to observe the nativity 
of 1 1 i in who died for the ideals that, 

if adhered to, would make of this 

sorry sphere a perpetual Garden of 

Once again the Christian world pays 
tribute to a Tiny Babe, wrapped in 
swaddling clothes and laid in a man- 
ger because for Him there was no 
room in the inn. Heavenly hosts sang 
''On earth peace and good will toward 
men" while "the glory of the Lord 
shone round about them." 

Millions of gilded steeples have since 
been erected in His name and more 
millions of stained glass windows com- 
memorate His ideals, His teachings and 
His deeds. 

Millions recognize him to this day as 
the son of God who was born "a Sav- 
ior, which is Christ the Lord." Mil- 
lions more regard Him as the last of 
the great Hebrew prophets, son of the 
House of David. Even atheists and ag- 
nostics name Him the greatest man 
that ever lived. 

What a mess humanity has made of 
the world which disregards His teach- 
ings today even as did the small group 
which was not satisfied until they had, 
taken His life after "railroading" Him 
in the night, sans trial or conviction, 
accused only by those whom He had 
cast out of the temple which they had 
turned from a house of prayer into a 
den of thieves, money lenders and dove 

A well known painting depicts the 
tiny Babe of Bethlehem, toddling His 
first steps into His mother's arms, 
while a descending sun casts His 
shadow in the form of the cross to which 
He was destined to be cruelly nailed; 
the gentle Jew whose only "crime" 
consisted of preaching love, tolerance 
and decency. 

At the age of twelve His parents lost 
Him as, for three days, He sat in the 
Temple of Jerusalem where the priests 
and the doctors were astonished at His 
answers and understandings. When 
His parents finally found Him they 
were amazed and knew Him not. His 
own parents: knew not this hoy of 
twelve who never missed the annual 
trip to Jerusalem and the temple, just 
as the world today proves by war. 
hatred and strife that they know Him 

As the racketeers who had been 
driven by Him from the Temple sought 
how they might, and finally did. de- 
stroy Him, so the world today contin- 
ues to drive the nails of intolerance 
and hatred that perpetuate the cruci- 
fixion of His ideals and His teachings.

1950 years after the night on which 
the angels sang, His ideals, acknowl- 
edged as eternal verities, are disre- 
garded due to the sheer cussedness of 
the human race. 

"Father, forgive them for they know 
not what they do," remains the plea to- 
day as a stupid world, in spite of the 
advancement and culture with which it 
has been blessed, fails to live by such 
axioms as 

"Judge not lest ye be judged", 
"Love thy neighbor as thyself", 
"Blessed are the peace makers", 
"He that is without sin among you 

let him first cast a stone", 

"I am the light of the world", and 
"As ye would that men should do 

to you, do ye also to them, likewise". 

In 1950 years we have not yet 
learned to follow the teachings of Him 
of whom John recorded that He did so 
many things to show the way "the 
which, if they should be written every 
one, I suppose that even the world it- 
self could not contain the books that 
should be written." 

From the manger, thirty short years 
as the humble carpenter followed by 
fisherfolk and other lowly people, to 
the cross on the Hill of Skulls. 

Millions will devoutly observe the 
anniversary of His birth, joyous carols 
will fill the air. Lucky woi'ld to have 
had Him, the Babe of the Manger, 
the "Light of the World," a light that 
is needed by the world today as it has 
always been needed. 

Christmas time finds millions, like 
the wise men and the shepherds of old, 
flocking to the manger while voices 
are lifted in carols dedicated to Him. 

However, where humanity is faced 
with the challenge to live by the eternal 
verities He set as ideals, there still re- 
mains for Him "no room in the inn." 


If the ideals and teachings eulogized in 
the preceding editorial were applied to 
our lives there would be no occasion for 
printing this item in tribute to Amer- 
ican youth, and to a fine writer, Joseph 
Alsop. His columns in the Washing- 
ton Post are uniformly good, but one 
about Korea, titled "The Conquerors" 
struck us as a classic example of catch- 
ing the esprit de corps of a fine mili- 
tary unit. 

The title suggests plumed Caesars 
on horse back, coats of mail and all 
the pomp and panoply some miscon- 
ceptionists associate with war. Alsop 
gives you a word picture of what to- 
day's "conquerors" really look like. 

Mr. Alsop, in writing of the exploits 
and indomitable team spirit of Easy 
Company, Fifth Marines, might just as 
well have been describing any group 
from any outfit, provided they were 
similarly indoctrinated and enjoyed 
equal leadership. 

With the "professional attitude" al- 
ways on display in a demonstration of 
the value of military education and 
training these kids moved on coldly, 
shrewdly, fighting superlatively with 
no seeming regard for what had passed 
or what fate might hold in store for 

After writing - of how Easy Company 
took evei'y objective assigned to them, 
held what they had taken and finally 
stood on the heights they had capture" 1 
only after terrific action, stubborn op- 
position and great sacrifices, and just a 
handful of Easy Company left to tell 
the tale, Alsop writes id' "The ('mi 
querors": — 

"Thin little band of America us 

whose average age in not much above 

iO, teas plunged into the Korean fight- 
ing iii early August. Far had seen 
combat before. Hardly one possessed 
the kind of 'understanding of what then 
ire re fighting for' that academic-mind- 
ed people at home are always saying 
soldiers ought to hare. As far as one 
can make out the company's rieiv of 
the matter, then at the cruel bet/inning 
and now when victory is in sight, they 
hare been lighting for their country. 
And this simple sentiment, reinforced 
by stern training and the company's 
powerful sense of being a team, has 
been quite good enough." 

"And here, perhaps, is the moral of 
this experience, tvhich must forcibly 
strike anyone who knows the very dif- 
ferent atmosphere of the snake pit that 
is Washington. These men of the com- 
pany, after all, arc quite ordinary 
Americans, who have had a rather less 
than average share of the conventional 
good things of our luxurious society. If 
they are brave and generous hearted, 
curiously wise and genially indomi- 
table, it is because quite ordinary 
Americans respond in these ways to the 
right sort of challenge. And when you 
observe this, and in the same breath 
remember the pettiness, coivardice, 
cheapness and self-seeking of so many 
of those to whom the destinies of these 
men are confided, you grow impotently 
angry at the unworthiness of the lead- 
ers of the country that they lead." 


Maryland people, like others all over 
the world are, at this season, singing 
"Silent Night, Holy Night," the world's 
most popular Christmas carol. 

It's a simple song, a humble song, 
the music and lyrics of which were 
written by a simple and lowly people. 
Today, 132 years after it was written, 
it will be sung as usual in the same 
humble surroundings at Oberndorf. 
Austria, where it was first composed 
and recorded. 

Mice had gnawed through the bel- 
lows of Father Joseph Mohr's Sankt 
Nicolaus church organ. This was in 
1818. What to do for Christmas music 
for his flock, mostly simple bargemen 
on the Salzbach River? 

Father Mohr and school master Franz 
Xavier Gruber went to work. By Christ- 
mas Eve they had fashioned a simple 
but moving carol, simple because it 
was to be sung by only the two men 
accompanied by the guitar of one of 

That night the bargemen and the 
children liked the song, probably with- 
out appreciating that 132 years later, 
translated to the languages of all the 
world, it would be the most popular

of Christmas hymns, humble in its 
dedication to the Infant of Bethlehem. 

A year later an organ builder heard 
the song. He played it wherever he 
went. The song spread. 

At Zillerthal in the Tyrol singing 
glove makers picked it up. In 1831, 
they sang it at the Leipzig fair and 
"Stille Nacht" was on its way around 
the world. It went on to be included 
in the programs of the great diva, 
Madame Ernestine Schumann-Heink. 
No one ever sang it better or with more 
feeling than she did. 

In 1900, floods in the Salzbach Valley 
destroyed the old town of Oberndorf, 
Austria, and the church of Sankt Nico- 
laus. Music lovers from all nations 
sent donations to raise a little chapel 
near the new Oberndorf. 

There, this year, in Oberndorf, 
Austria, two men will give forth with,

The lyrics do not lend themselves to 
literal translation which would be, 

"Silent night, holy night, 
All is asleep, lonely vigilant 
Are only the holy parent pair 
Who were in the stall at Bethlehem 
With the Heavenly Child." 
Father Mohr was buried in 1848, 
penniless. Franz Gruber also passed 
away unrecognized. Neither will ever 
die as long as "Silent Night" is sung 
on Christmas Eve. 


Maryland alumni who have served 
and are serving in uniform, like service 
and ex-service men the country over, 
have reason to be proud of the three 
police officers who thwarted the abor- 
tive attempt on the life of President 

They were ex-service men. Service 
training pays off in such emergencies. 
The police trio, alert and on the job, 
identified the situation immediately 
and, utterly disregarding their own 
safety, threw themselves into the 
breach. One gave his life. The other

Mr. Brierham 

THE dean of all University of 
Maryland Alumni missed the 1950 
Homecoming. This is news, for Dr. R. 
Sumter Griffith of the class of 1880 
rarely fails to make the trip to Col- 
lege Park for both Homecoming and 
Commencement. In addition to his in- 
tense loyalty for the University he also 
wants to check the "Founders Gate" 
containing the name of his father who 
was an original 
stockholder in Mary- 
1 a n d Agricultural 
College. He says, 
"The University is 
growing so rapidly 
and the gate moves 
so often I must come 
twice a year to keep 

Dr. Griffith, who 
also holds an 1886 
degree from the 
Medical School, 
traveled more than 
150 miles from his home in Waynes- 
boro (Basic City), Va. for his 70th An- 
niversary Homecoming. He became ill 
Homecoming morning and missed the 
occasion by only the eight miles be- 
tween his grandson's Washington home 
and College Park. If you have not seen 
the vigor and life of the little doctor 
with the satchel and perennial black- 
string bow tie you cannot fully appre- 
ciate excerpts from the letter he wrote 
his alumni friends. He said, "I don't 
think I was ever so disappointed as 1 
was on Oct. 21st — Home Day. I do 
hope I may be here and able to come to 
the Closing Day, also the next 'Home 
Day.' I trust the next MARYLAND 
will give a full account of the 'Day'." 

Featured in Richmond 

"Fort" Sumter, as Dr. Griffith was 
called in his school days, was recently 
featured in the Richmond Times- 
Dispatch in an article by Hamilton 
Crockford. Portions of this article are

included here since they give the real 
story on a great alumnus: 

"Fort Sumter fell on April 13, but 
news traveled slow to Southern Mary- 
land then and Paw had just heard it in 
Friendship on the sixteenth when he 
headed back to the house and met the 
doctor in the yard. 

" 'You've got a boy up there,' the 
doctor told him. 

'Hurrah! We'll call him Sumter.' 
"And Paw went up the path hollering 

" 'That was how I started,' said Rob- 
ert Sumter Griffith. 

"Man and boy, Friendship's war baby 
has been a ball of fire ever since. 
Country doctor, politician, whisky- 
fight, he's been sought for, praised, 
threatened, and shot at like the fort — 
but never struck his colors. 

Divided Allegiance 
"The Civil War has memories for 
Dr. Griffith. He recalls the divided ter- 
ritory and remembers that his grand- 
father who lived in the Northern part 
of the State was loyal to the Union 
while his father smuggled supplies up 
the Chesapeake Bay for the South. His 
worst licking came at the end of the 
war when he traded a loaf of his moth- 
er's bread for the hardtack of a Yan- 
kee soldier. His father was a Demo- 
crat in the Maryland Legislature where 
his uncle had served as a Republican. 
Dr. Griffith himself ran for Congress 


on the Prohibition Ticket. He add--. 
'Some say I got two votes: Mrs. Grif- 
fifth's and mine.' 

Served as Ma; or 
"The doctor settled in Basic City in 
1890, and served as Mayor for twelve 
(12) years. He practiced in the moun- 
tain country, first on horseback and 
later in a buggy drawn by his old horse 
'Bob' who with a free rein brought him 
home after midnight calls. lie worked 
night and day through the flu epidemit 
of World War I. He is a 57 year Mason 
and for 50 years was surgeon for the 
C.&O., and' N.&W. Railroads. The 
story is told that Basic City was rough 
in the early days. When one railroad 
man got mad with another, he didn't 
tell him to go to a warmer climate. He 
told him 'Go to Basic'.

"The versatile doctor served them 
all. When the jail was full the drunks 
were tied to a fence rail until they 
were sober enough for trial. Then the 
doctor tried them. When they needed a 
doctor he treated them. He made a 
local reputation in pneumonia and 
bone-setting cases. He delivered more 
than 3,000 babies, many by flash light. 
For those people who thought they had 
to have some kind of medicine he rolled 
a special flour pill and used the cheap- 
est flour he could buy. He continued 
his practice until two years ago, and 
now at nearly 90 years of age he finds 
time to drive around in his Model A 

" 'I've had a whale of a time,' Dr. 
Griffith said. 'I'd like to do it all over 
again.' " 

Homecoming Queen 
Being chosen Homecoming Queen of 
1950 wasn't Janis North's first experi- 
ence as a beauty contest winner. Last 
year Janis, who is a freshman, was 
picked as Sorrell Cover Girl in a con 
test sponsored by a Washington high 
school and sorority. Her prize for be- 
coming "Cover Girl" was a $100 model- 
ing course. 

Last summer Janis was a contestant 
in the Miss Washington contest and 
took third place honors. She was also a 
member of the May Court at Woodrow 
Wilson High School. 

Miss North is fond of ballet dancing, 
and has taken toe lessons for ten years. 
One of her teachers is Katherine Malo- 
r.ey, Prima Ballarina of the Metropoli- 
tan Opera Company. 

She has danced for many functions 
around Washington, including solo ap- 
pearances at several embassy parties 
and other social functions. 

Janis is a native Washingtonian. Her 
father is Post Master for the District 
of Columbia. Her picture appears on 
page 33. 

Homecoming Luncheon 
Climaxed by a luncheon which more 
than 1500 alumni attended, and damp- 
ened only by an upset victory by North 
Carolina State, the curtain came down 
on an outstanding 1950 Homecoming 
celebration. Nearly 600 alumni en- 
joyed a mixer and dance in the Dining 
Hall following the game.

No Homecoming 

"Of course this way's convenient hut it 
WOULD have been nice to have had some place 
to come home to at llomccomin- " 

Among the older alumni present 
were Dr. H. B. McDonnell '88, long- 
time University faculty member; Clif- 
ton E. Fuller '96, the first quarterback 
on a College Park football team; Mah- 
lon N. Haines '96, who won the gold 
medal as the best-drilled cadet; and 
Granville Lewis '97, a former halfback 
named to the all-time University foot- 
ball team. A younger alumnus, Monro 
Leaf '27, creator of "Ferdinand the 
Bull," returned to speak to the Arts 
& Sciences alumni after an absence from 
the campus of twelve years. He de- 
scribed the changes as "fantastic" and 
recalled the campus of his day as a 
"couple of girls' dorms in a clump of 

Special reunions wei'e held by the 
classes of 1906, 1909, and 1911, while 
the classes of '17, '18, '19, and '20 


combined for a banquet in the Dining 
Hall. Special attention was given the 
class of 1900 on their fiftieth anniver- 
sary. University keys were awarded 
the four returning members in half- 
time ceremonies in the new Byrd Sta- 
dium. Those returning were S. Mar- 
vin Peach, William Groff, Dr. J. Collin- 
son Joyce, and Melville Strasburger. 
This presentation will be made each 
year to returning members of the gol- 
den anniversary class. 

In morning meetings, alumni of the 
six College Park Schools elected their 
officers. It is interesting to note that 
of the six elected Presidents four had 
served as editors of their school sec- 
tions for MARYLAND magazine. The 
I'ou i- were: Edward M. Rider, A&S; 
Egbert Tingley, BPA: Judson Bell, Ed;

In New York Too 

Not to be outdone by Homecoming 
celebrants at College Park, the Uni- 
versity of Maryland Alumni Club of 
New York staged their own Homecom- 
ing. A letter from K. T. "Tom" 
Broach, Club President, tells of the 
gathering of a group of alumni in the 
Johnny Victor Theater to see Mary- 
land versus North Carolina State on 
television: The theater, in Rockefeller 
Center, was made available by the RCA 
Exhibition Hall. The occasion drew 
wide comment in the sports sections of 

the New York Journal American and 
the New York Herald Tribune. Exten- 
sive play was given the two star backs. 
Jack Scarbath and Joe Petruzzo, who 
are attending the University on scho- 
larships in the name of Charlie Keller 
'37, a former Yankee outfielder. These 
scholarships were made possible as a 
result of a "day" for the baseball star 
sponsored by the New York chili. 
Keller insisted that all contributions 
for the day in his honor lie channeled 
to a scholarship program for deserving 
prospective students.

MARYLAND'S anti - subversion 
law, the Ober Act of 1949, was 
ratified by the voters of the State in 
the November election. The application 
of the law affects all faculty and em- 
ployees of the University who have 
been signing the required certificate 
since 1949 on the theory that a loyal 
American has nothing to fear in assert- 
ing such loyalty. 

The Ober Act requires public officials 
to sign loyalty affidavits and makes 
membership in a subversive organiza- 
tion a criminal offense. 

Mr. I ekes on The Air 

Former Secretary of the Interior 
[ekes spoke against the Ober Act on 
Radio-TV hookups. His address was 
typical of the speaker. He referred to 
the Ober Act as "a bastard law, con- 
ceived in hysteria and born in a psy- 
chopathic ward. It is something that a 
psychoanalyist could analyze better 
than I who am merely a lawyer. It is a 
monster which should have been quiet- 
ly put away as soon as its mongolism 
had been ascertained. 

"Fortunately, the people, thanks to 
public spirited volunteers," Mr. Ickes 
went on to say, "will have a chance to 
act for themselves on Election Day. 
The people of Maryland would rather 
die on their feet than live on their 
knees, let alone fall flat on their 
stomachs, although it must be admitted 
that some people prefer to tremble at 
the sight of the scarecrow that they have 
themselves invoked." 

Dr. Byrd Replies 

Dr. H. C. Byrd, President of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland, opposed Mr. Ickes 
on the TV-radio hook-up. 

"It is not my purpose to engage in 
name-calling," Dr. Byrd said, "nor to 
employ ridicule as a substitute for ar- 
gument, nor to make unfounded gen- 
eral statements and claims. This 
method is age old in its use as a sub- 
stitute for sound argument. Contrary 
to such a procedure, it is my purpose, 
instead, to present the facts about the 
Ober law and to show factually what it 
does and what it does not do. The law 
provides for the following: 

"That no person shall commit any act 
intended to overthrow, destroy or alter 
the government of the United States, 
or of the State of Maryland, 'by revo- 
lution, force or violence;' and that no 
one shall teach, or conspire with, others 
in any such act. 

"That no corporation, or other or- 
ganization, shall participate in any act 
directed toward a chancre in government 
'by revolution, force or violence.' 

"That any appointed employee, or anv 
candidate for election, of the State of 
Maryland, or of any of the State's po- 
litical sub-divisions, shall certify that 
he or she is not a subversive person : 
and the law narrowly defines a 'sub- 
versive person' only as one who advo- 
cates the use of 'revolution, force or 
violence' against the government of the 
State of Maryland or of the United 

"That before the State shall appropri- 
ate public funds to any private institu- 
tion, that institution shall file with the 
State a written report of steps it has 
taken to determine if it has disloyal 
persons in its employ and what steps it 
has taken, if any. to terminate such 

Maryland Voters Ratify Subversive Act of 1949, as Dr. H. C. Byrd, 
President of the University, Refutes Former Interior Secretary Ickes' 

Attack on Ober Law 

"The Ober law has one objective and 
only one," said Dr. Byrd, "it seeks to 
prevent attempts to change our gov- 
ernment by 'revolution, force or vio- 
lence;' or, to put it in another way, its 
objective is to make certain that any 
changes in the government of the 
United States, or of the State of Mary- 
land, shall be brought about through 
orderly legal procedure by a vote of 
the people. If we believe that 'revolu- 
tion, force, or violence,' with their suf- 
fering and accompanying disasters, 
should be used to overthrow the gov- 
ernment, then we should be opposed to 
the Ober law; if we believe that, to 
make changes in the organic law of the 
country, we should follow orderly legal 
processes, then we believe in exactly 
what the Ober law is intended to 

Carefully Written 

"The law is very carefully written 
and very narrowly defines its objective 
for the specific purpose of protecting 
the rights of individuals and the rights 
of groups. The so-called loyalty pro- 
vision in the Ober law," President Byrd 
went on to say, "is so limited in its 
application that it does not even pro- 
vide, in the ordinary sense of the word, 
that any employee of the State must 
declare that he is loyal. It says noth- 
ing about attentiveness to duty, loyalty 
to superiors, confidence in the objec- 
tives of work; it simply says that a 
person must certify that he or she is 
not a 'subversive person.' And inas- 
much as the law defines a 'subversive 
person' as one who by his or her action 
advocates overthrow of the government 
by 'revolution, force or violence', it is 
evident that the loyalty provision of 
the law does nothing more than ask a 
person if he or she intends to be a law- 
abiding citizen with respect to one law. 
It goes no further than that. 

People's Rights 

"Now, should such a question be 
asked? The answer is obvious. The 
people of the State who spend $140,- 
000,000 a year for services that the 
State government has organized to 
meet the people's needs have every 
right to ask about the kind of men and 
women who will be employed to render 
these services," Dr. Byrd continued, 
adding, "for any college professor, or 
teacher in the public schools, to claim 
that the people who are taxed to pay 
the bills have no right to ask about, 
or to set up certain standards for, the 



"The average American knows too 
little of his heritage. We haven't even 
given our young men a conception of 
America and what it means." 

(Such opinions, from people who 
-trant, make Maryland's program in 
"American Civilization" look like the 
medicine the doctor ordered.) 


men and women who are to be respons- 
ible for the moral and intellectual wel- 
fare of children is an absurdity. 

"What objection should any public 
servant have, if he be honest in his 
intentions, if the people of the State 
say to him, 'We would like to know 
whether or not you favor upsetting by 
violence the government we who sup- 
port you have organized for the orderly 
management of our affairs ? ' " Dr. Byrd 

"What private business would hire 
a person who might intend to destroy 
the business ? Is it unreasonable for 
government to exercise that same kind 
of good judgment?", Byrd asked. 

Not Unreasonable 

"The provision that the State, before 
making an appropriation to a private 
institution, shall try to ascertain from 
that institution if there are members 
of its staff who would be willing to 
destroy government by violence is 
proper. It would be rather unusual in- 
deed for the State to make every effort 
to prevent infiltration into its own 
departments of people with subversive 
tendencies and at the same time lay out 
tax funds to support other institutions 
without raising any question whatso- 
ever," Dr. Byrd went on to say. 

"When the government is asked to 
appropriate money to any institution," 
President Byrd continued, "public or 
private, the government owes it as a 
duty to the people whose money it is 
spending to find out whether or not 
that money is to be spent to support 
persons who intend to betray their 
trust. The Ober law is nothing more 
than an effort by the State to protect 
itself against the infiltration of those 
who seek to destroy it by force. We 
know that such infiltration has taken 
place and will undoubtedly be attempt- 
ed in the future, and not to take pre- 
cautions to prevent such action would 
be inexcusable laxity. 


"The one feature of the Ober law 
that some people may not like is that 
which provides a penalty for perjury. 
But something to make the law effect- 
ive is necessary," Dr. Byrd said. "Dis- 
loyalty to government in itself is an 
extremely difficult charge to prove in 
court, as shown in many recent cases. 
It is difficult even for congressional 
committees to obtain evidence to sub- 
stantiate such a charge. There is one 
charge, however, that can be proved 
and that is whether or not a person 
has lied, or in more polite "language, 
has committed perjury. If a person be 
proved to belong to an organization 
that seeks to destroy or change the 
government by 'revolution, force or vio- 
lence,' and that person lies about his 
connection punishment for that kind of 
a liar should receive little sympathy 
from anybody. No other kind of per- 
son has anything to fear because the 
law specifically does not 'apply to any 

one who unknowingly belongs to such 
an organization. The Ober law has 

nothing in it to indicate 'thought COD 
trol' or to prevent thinking on the pari 
of an individual about anything. The 

Ober law very specifically and narrow- 
ly provides that only an act shall be 
construed as illegal. In other words, 
the Ober law refers to activities of in- 
dividuals actually committed and not 
to what they may think." 

Dr. Byrd continued, "There is not 
one word in the law which infringes in 
any sense on academic freedom. Not a 
word in the law infringes in the least 
on the rights of political or racial mi- 
norities. There is nothing- in the law 
that has the remotest relationship to 
an attempt at 'thought control.' There 
is nothing- to prevent teachers giving 
their students facts about communism. 
about the doctrine of Karl Marx, or 
about anything- else, except the one 
restriction that they shall not incite or 
teach action against the government 
by 'force or violence.' 

Not Much to Ask 

"Is that too much to ask of those to 
whom we entrust our children? Is it 
too much for the people to expect of 
those they depend on for other gov- 
ernment services? 

"It might be well to remember," the 
University President went on to say, 
"that there is nothing in the guar- 
antees of free speech which gives un- 
bridled privilege. Freedom of speech 
does not give anyone a light, through 
words, to injure others. There is a 
legal, as well as a moral responsibility, 
in regard to the doctrine of freedom of 
speech, and, all good citizens recognize 
the responsibility thus involved. It is 
true that a man or woman, if he or she 
violates the Ober law, is subject to ar- 
rest, and justly so, but the law so defi- 
nitely describes the act for which a 
person may he arrested that injustices 
under it would be almost impossible. 
Any statement that the law could be 
used to persecute a minority group in- 
dicates a lack of understanding of the 
law. It would seem well to state cate- 
gorically without any possibility of re- 
futation, that the law has not one word 
in it that interferes in the slightest 
degree with any religious concept or 
with any religious sect. No oath is 

No Discrimination 
"The law does not discriminate 
against labor or labor unions, and does 
not seek to limit their activities in any 
way except to say that they shall not 
try to overthrow the government by 
force or violence," Dr. Byrd S'aid, con- 
tinuing, "It has been said that inas- 
much as a disloyal person would, with- 
out any compunction, sign a statement 
that he is not subversive, the law. 
therefore, would not accomplish its 
purpose, and, consequently, is useless. 
To accept such an objection as such 
would be tantamount to saying that no 
laws are necessary because someone, 
or a certain group, may lie about break- 
ing the law. Such an absurdity falls 
of its own weight. 

"Recently," President Byrd went on 
to say, "a statement was made that the 
law represented something of a tie be- 

tween the Catholic ('lunch ami tin- 
State, m which the Catholic Church 

might use the State'- power to fur- 
ther its own ends. Of all the fai 
fetched objections thai have been of 
fered relative to the Ober law, this one, 

88 my fellow Kastcrn Shoremen "inr 
times say, 'lakes the cake'. Such a 

statement hardly could We anything 

more than an attempt to arouse people 

of their religious persuasions to oppose 
the law. Actually this is a tight of all 
the churches and not of the Catholic 
Church alone. The Catholic Church, 
instead of having such a baseless 
i barge made against it. should be 
I raised by every citizen and aided by 
all chinches, for its fight against a 
political philosophy that seeks to de- 
stroy religion and to lead people away 
from religious concepts. 

The American Way 
"The Declaration of Independence 
proclaimed that all men are endowed by 
their Creator with certain inalienable 
rights and that it is to secure these 
rights that governments are instituted. 
In other words, this American govern- 
ment was instituted to secure an or- 
dered way of life, ordained by God, 
and not to have this way of life de- 
stroyed by any individual, or group of 
individuals, through bloody revolution 
or physical force," Dr. Byrd continued. 
"The people of Maryland in their 
Declaration of Rights," Dr. Byrd em- 
phasized in conclusion, "adopted by the 
Constitutional Convention of 1867, be- 
gan that document by saying they were 
'grateful to Almighty God for our Civil 
and Religious liberty' and that they 
sought to establish a Constitution for 
the 'more permanent security' of that 
Civil and Religious liberty. Have we be- 
come so weak in our moral fiber, in com- 
parison to those who pledged their lives 
as well as their sacred honor that we do 
not even have the courage to protect 
such a legacy of government? On the 
contrary, I am confident that the people 
of this state and nation are awake, nay 
aroused, in their determination to pro- 
tect the government which preserves 
for them the divinely ordained rights 
so necessary to the satisfactory exist- 
ence of man as an individual." 

That there should have been any ob- 
jection to a measure such as the Ober 
law was surprising to just about every 
Marylander who ever served in uni- 
form. In the services oaths of allegi- 
ance have been routine since the days 
of the original "Old Liners" under 
George Washington.

President Byrd Addresses Student and Faculty Gathering on 
University's Progress 

By Bert Carhart aii» 

A UNIVERSITY "wide in its scope 
and dedicated to service" was 
the description given by President 
Byrd of the University's activities 
when he spoke at the annual Fall Con- 
vocation at Ritchie Coliseum. 

Dr. Byrd was speaker at the Con- 
vocation at the request of the Deans 
who inaugurated a new policy with the 
L949 Convocation of having only Uni- 
versity people as participants in the 

Dr. Byrd spoke extemporaneously 
for thirty-five minutes. Of particular 
interest was his statement concerning 
the Negro college at Princess Anne. 
Dr. Byrd said: 

Race Question 

"I do not know what the ultimate 
solution of the race question so far as 
education may be concerned in this 
state or in any other Southern state. 

"But I do know that under recent 
Supreme Court decisions it is going to 
be extremely difficult for the states of 
the South to conduct institutions for 
segregated education of Negroes that 
will provide or can provide education 
for the Negro on a basis equal to that 
in the white state universities and 
white state colleges. 

"I do know we shall meet the ques- 
tion always in obedience to the laws 
and decisions of the courts and in what 
we think are the best interests of the 
student body and in keeping with the 
customs of the people of the state." 

In stressing that the University 
stands for service to the people of 
Maryland, Dr. Byrd described some of 
the tasks the University does in addi- 
tion to its academic instruction. He 
told of the Extension force with its 
County Agents working in every coun- 
ty of the State and offering service 
in the homes with information of nu- 
trition, child care, health and the social 
sciences. He said the University is now 
undertaking work of this nature in 
Baltimore city because it is much 
needed there. 

In Baltimore 

Another service of the University 
arises from its professional schools in 
Baltimore, the President said. He 
added that nearly all the pharmacists, 
98 per cent of the dentists, 58 to 60 
per cent of the doctors who are prac- 
ticing in Maryland are graduates of the 

Dr. Byrd spoke frankly about the 
financing system the University oper- 
ates under and criticized it as being 
"too cumbersome." But he said he 
thought the University might be re- 
lieved of some of its difficulties soon, 
although it will always have controls 
and restrictions because it is a state 

Memorial Chapel Under Way 

Every Alumnus Has Responsibility For Gold 
Slur Names 


Dr. Harold F. Cotterman, Dean of the Faculty, 
University of Maryland, pictured above, was 
elected to membership on the Executive Com- 
mittee of the Middle States Association of Col- 
leges and Secondary Schools at the recent 64th 
annual convention of that association at Atlan- 
tic City. 

The Middle States Association of Colleges and 
Secondary Schools accredits colleges and second- 
ary schools in New York, Pennsylvania. New 
Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and 
the District of Columbia. 

In speaking of the way progress 
comes about, Dr. Byrd urged his facul- 
ty members to always "ask for all they 
want and be persistent until they get 
it." He said he hoped the University 
v/ould always have men of vision who 
would see further ahead than what the 
University could give them at the 
moment. But he cautioned the faculty, 
too, that the University and its depart- 
ments could never get more than the 
State's income could provide. 

President Byrd had this to say about 
the University's building program: 

Not for Grandeur 

"The University has never asked for 
one cent for buildings that were not 
demanded by the needs of its work. 
We do not build — as the Sunpapers 
sometimes say — for grandeur, but to 
do the service that people expect of 

People have a perfect right to expect 
service, he stated. "Is it not fair that 
when people take nearly six-million 
dollars out of their pockets annually, 
that those people have a right to ex- 
pect services from the faculty and from 
the students of the University that 
benefits from this money." 

Dr. Byrd concluded his address with 
a direct question to the assembled stu- 
dent body: 

"What answer will you give when 
you are asked how well are you dis- 
charging your responsibility? How 
well can you say you are working for 
the American way of life and those 
spiritual things that are founded in 
our Constitution and our Country?" 

Some five-thousand students and 
faculty were assembled for the Convo- 


WORK is now progressing rapid- 
ly on the new Chapel which 
will serve as a memorial to those who 
were lost to our alumni ranks in the 
two World Wars. 

Since the last Gold Star list was 
printed several additions have been re- 
ceived and we are pleased to announce 
two men whom we had thought lost 
have let us know they are now leading 
active lives after an experience of be- 
ing missing in action for a number of 

The bronze plaque containing the 
names of those who served us so well 
must be accurate in every detail; no 
names can be omitted. For this reason 
we ask your sincere help in again re- 
viewing the list in detail so that we 
might be advised of any omissions. 

Before reviewing the list we direct 
your special attention to the following 
for whom we do not have complete in- 
formation. We need to know the class 
and school of Thomas Addison, John R. 
McNeil, John Mears, Theodore Prevost, 
Justice Underwood, and W. J. Warren. 

Alumni are not being asked to con- 
tribute to the expense of constructing 
the new chapel which will serve as the 
center of campus religious activities. 
With this thought in mind it is all the 
more essential that they contribute a 
small amount of time to help make the 
Gold Star list perfect. No parent 
would let this recognition of the serv- 
ice of a son be by-passed. Won't you 
take the same interest in a fellow alum- 
nus who, in the interest of you and your 
family, let himself be sacrificed.

layout and editing. Copy and pictorial 
material were classified "excellent." 
Special commendation was accorded 
the coverage of school events. 


Fertilizers containing Ammonum Ni- 
trate are sometimes dangerously explo- 
sive. Dr. Wilbert Huff, of Chemicai 
Engineering, published warnings of the 
hazard and suggested that large scale 
tests be made to find out what handle- 
with-care precautions are needed. Un- 
fortunately Dr. Huff's advice wasn't 
heeded. Came the Texas City disaster 
and several other explosions. Belatedly 
Dr. Huff has been asked to serve on a 
committee of the National Research 
Council to review the tragic evidence of 
just how explosive Ammonium Nitrate 
fertilizer can be.

\m - i iinimi: - 1949 

By Charles Y. Hit 

Professor of Geography 

«N December 2, 1949, Dr. Oliver 
Edwin Baker died at the age of 
66. After 31 years of active service 
and a successful career at the United 
States Department of Agriculture, Dr. 
Baker retired from governmental ser- 
vice in 1942 and started his second 
and equally brilliant career by the 
founding and establishment of a new 
Department of Geography at the Uni- 
versity of Maryland. 

Ambitious Plans 

His plans as to Geography at the 
University were ambitious. The staff 
he assembled included several very 
unusual men, a native of Netherlands, 
one of China, one so long and inti- 
mately in Latin America as to be 
almost a native. Later he also in- 
vited an eminent authority on Soviet 
Union to join the staff. These are full 
professors. Another of his research 
staff whs so outstanding in his field 
that he later became the editor of the 
world's second most distinguished tech- 
nical journal in meteorology. From 
the beginning he had an able woman 
geographer from the University of Chi- 
cago who was most helpful to him for 
conducting classes in elementary geog- 
raphy. The teaching done by this large 
staff attracted a sizable share of the 
University's undergraduate and gradu- 
ate students. Graduate students came 
from far and wide, and numbered 40 
before Dr. Baker died. The depart- 
ment which started from scratch in 
1942 has already conferred 9 masters 
degrees and 5 doctorates up to June 
1950. This was indeed a remarkable 
growth and a phenomenal success in 
such a short period of time. This testi- 
fies to the vigor and tireless effort 
which Dr. Baker gave to his work, and 
represents a truly notable achievement 
on his part. 

A Gentleman 

Dr. Baker was always unassuming, 
modest, kind, polite, considerate, and 
possessed sympathetic understanding 
toward his fellowmen, regardless of 
race, creed or nationality. He gave 
freely of his time and energy to aid 
others. Numerous people came to him 
with all sorts of problems. He always 
did the best he could for each. His 
daily personal mail included dozens of 
letters from many parts of the world. 

Although Dr. Baker gave of his 
strength and time "too generously" to 
his students, staff and visitors, in in- 
numerable conferences, he also taught a 
relatively heavy schedule. Hence he 
was unable to complete much for pub- 
lication while at Maryland. He initi- 
ated and laid the foundation for two 
ambitious research projects at the de- 
partment, namely, the Atlas of Natural 

Resources, and the China Atlas. He 
ardently hoped to complete much of 
this work before retiring at 70. That he 
did not live to do so is an irreparable 
loss to geography. 

Dr. Baker was internationally known 
as an eminent authority on land utili- 
zation, agricultural geography, and 
population problems. Visitors from all 
over the world came to call on him. A 
recent check of the signatures in his 
guest book disclosed people of every 
chief nationality and racial group. He 
was a truly genuine world citizen. 

Native of Ohio 

Oliver Edwin Baker was born on 
September 10, 1883, at Tiffin, Ohio, the 
son of Edwin and Martha (Thomas) 
Baker. His father was a sea captain at 
Cape Cod and his mother a Vermont 
school teacher. Before he was ten 
years old, he was attracted and deeply 
interested in geography, maps, and 
peoples by his reading of Knox's "Boy 
Travellers". Owing to his poor health 
in his youth, he spent most of his early 
years studying at home and did not go 
to school until he reached the age of 
12, In 1903, he graduated in Heidel- 
berg College, Ohio, with special hon- 
ors, and majored in mathematics and 
botany. In 1903-04, he stayed on at 
Heidelberg for his master's degree in 
philosophy and sociology. In 1905, he 
received his second master's degree, in 
political science at Columbia Univer- 
sity. In 1907-08, he studied forestry at 
Yale University. In 1908-12, he took 
work in agriculture and later in 1919- 
21, in economics, both at the University 
of Wisconsin. In 1921, he was award- 
ed a Ph.D. in economics by the latter 
institution. Owing to his outstanding 
achievements in his career, Dr. Baker 
was honored with an Hon. D.Sc. by 
Heidelberg College, Ohio, and a Ph.D. 
by the University of Goettingen, Ger- 
many, 1937. He was with Wisconsin 
Agricultural Experimental Station in 
1910-12. From 1912-1942, he was em- 
ployed as a research worker and held 
various posts in the Bureau of Farm 
Management and later the Bureau of 
Agricultural Economics, United States 
Department of Agriculture. He did 
outstanding work in these capacities. 
Since 1942, he was acting head and 
professor of geography at the Univer- 
sity of Maryland. Dr. Baker has rep- 
resented the United States Department 
of Agriculture in several international 
conferences abroad, once in Great Bri- 
tain, and once in Germany. Due to his 
extensive interest, he held membership 
in numerous learned and scientific so- 
cieties, including the Association of 
American Geographers (vice president, 
1923, and president, 1932); American 
Meteorological Society, Farm Econom- 
ics Association, and many others. He 
married Alice Hargrave Crew on De-

wife and four children, Helen Thomas

kins University); Sabra Zilpha (a stu- 
dent at the University of Maryland); 
Edwin Crew (a farmer); and Mildred

Dr. Baker was most versatile in his 
intellectual pursuit and his professional 
work covered a wide field of knowl- 
edge. Through a period of 40 years of 
his professional life, he was most pro- 
ductive and had written and published 
a total of nearly 300 items, including 
many articles and addresses. Generally 
speaking, his writing and work may 
be divided into three periods: The first 
period was from 1912 to 1930. In this 
period, his major interest was in land 
utilization and agricultural geography. 
His first publication on the Atlas of 
World Agriculture (in collaboration 
with Vernon Finch) has long been the 
classic in this field and has been widely 
used as a standard reference for col- 
lege students in geography in the 
United States, as well as in several 
other foreign countries, including 
China and Japan. His articles repre- 
sented major contributions. Beginning 
from 1926, he initiated and prepared 
a series of articles on the Agricul- 
tural Regions of North America, pub- 
lished by the Economic Geography for 
a number of years following. 

Knew Agriculture 

His knowledge of American agricul- 
ture was more than rich. It was in- 
deed a choice experience for any gradu- 
ate student to sit in his seminar on 
Land Utilization and Agricultural Pro- 
duction and to hear him relating his ex- 
periences concerning the conditions and 
problems of agricultural land use of 
various areas throughout the United 
States. His memory and understand- 

ing of these problems were remarkabk 
and he made these areas living and 
vivid for his students. The late I. How- 
man once remarked that "only an O. E. 
Baker is qualified to write on the geo- 
graphy of agriculture in America." The 
Atlas of American Agriculture, which 
he edited, will remain as the standard 
work on the study of American agri- 
culture for many years to come. His 
first puhlished article on Chinese agri- 
culture was made in 1928 and aroused 
considerahle interest and discussion 
among both Chinese and American 

Field of Population 

The second period of Dr. Baker's 
work may be marked as from 1931 to 
1935. This may be called a transi- 
tional period, i.e., when the major em- 
phasis of his work shifted gradually 
into the field of population and rural 
life, although he still continued to 
write and publish on some phases of 
land utilization and agriculture. In 
fact, he wrote in widely diversified 
subjects at the time, including land 
use, food supply, conservation of na- 
tural resources, populations problems, 
etc. His noted works in this period 
may include: "American Policy in Re- 
lation to Population Growth, — Urban- 
rural Balance and Consumption 
Trends; Proceedings of Conference of 
Economic Policy for Agriculture, Uni- 
versity of Chicago, 1931"; "Utilization 
of Natural Wealth, part 2, Agricultural 
and Forestry Land Use" in the "Recent 
Social Trends in the United States"; 
"Rural-Urban Migration and the Na- 
tional Welfare", (Annuals of this As- 
sociation, Vol. XXXIII, No. 2, 1933); 
"Bevolkerungsbewegung unci Land- 
wirckschaft in den Vereinigten Staa- 
ten", (by Internationale Konferenz fur 
Agrarwissenschaft; Bad Eilsen, 1934); 
and "The Outlook for Population" 
(published in Sect. 1, part II of Land 
Planning Committee, National Re- 
sources Board, Wash., D. C, 1935). 

The third period of Dr. Baker's work 
was from 1936 till his death in 1949. 
In this period, his major interest has 
concentrated mainly to the population 
problems, particularly the problems of 
declining birth-rate in the United 
States, the rural-urban migration, the 
problems of the stability and continuity 
of family life in America, and the 
changing patterns of American rural 
life. He wrote prolifically and he lec- 
tured passionately on these topics. He 
wrote at least over 100 items in this 
connection. Many of these thoughts 
were later crystallized in a book en- 
titled, "Agriculture in Modern Life" 
which he wrote jointly with Wilson and 
Borsodi in 1940. 

Sadly Missed 
Dr. Baker indeed lived a useful life. 
He not only contributed voluminously 
to the field of knowledge, but he in- 
spired genuine and warm human rela- 
tionship among mankind. He was al- 
ways a gentleman. When he passed 
away, geography lost an able and 
creative worker and humanity has lost 
a fine, great man. All his students 
and many friends greatly miss him.

Daily and Maintains Rigid Diet 

Elected to St

IN order to ride in steeplechase 
races twenty days in the year. 
Daniel Brewster, Maryland. LLB, Law, 
'49 on the Other 345 days diets as faith- 
fully as any plump matron, runs a 
daily 4-mile marathon and on occasion 
sweats it out in a Turkish bath. 

He also spends an hour or more 
every morning putting two of his 
jumping thoroughbreds through their 
paces before dashing into his Brook- 
landville home for a cup of coffee and 
then driving off to his Towson law 
office for an eight-hour stretch. 

That's the schedule a man must 
adopt to become one of Maryland's 
gentleman jockeys. 

Okinawa Marine 

Since 1947, when he returned from 
four years as a Marine Corps lieuten- 
ant with a battle record stretching 
from Guam to Okinawa, and with two 
Purple Hearts, 26-year-old Danny 
Brewster has been one of the top li- 
censed amateur timber-topping gentle- 
men jockeys in the East. 

He has lost and gained more weight 
in that time than his entire normal 
poundage of 175, has broken one shoul- 
der, and dislocated the other one. 

Still not sufficiently occupied, Mr. 
Brewster has also acquired his law 
degree in that three-year period. 

Danny is the oldest of six children. 
He learned to ride, on ponies, at the 
age of 6 with the help of his father, 
the late Daniel Brewster, Sr., and his 
mother, now Mrs. William Cochran. 

To Legislature 

In the November elections Mr. Brew- 
ster was elected to Maryland's State 

Today, with his 19-year-old brother 
Walter sharing honors, the Brewster 
family carries its red and white colors 
to trophies and prize money from New 
York to South Carolina. 

Danny is one of the 39 licensed ama- 
teur gentlemen jockeys in America. He 
is one of eleven from Maryland. 

From the middle of March to the end 
ol May, and again from September 
through early November, Danny gal- 
lops his way across the rolling hills of 
the Atlantic seaboard point-to-point 
lacing centers astride some of the best- 
trained steeplechase horses in the na- 

Not counting the steeplechase racing 
season in Maryland, he has participated 
in 50 point-to-point contests since 1947. 
These have netted him six victories, a 
score of second and third places — and 
ten spills. 

Steeplechase riding "is my big hobby 
in life," he says. 

His law office is a testimonial to this.

Danny Brewster gets up at 6 o'clock in 
the morning, runs out to th<

and for the next hour works them on' 

over the Green Spring Vallej 


Training \ ai iea 

The workout differs every day. Oi 

Monday, he jo^s the animal for a mile. 
then changes the pace t<> a gallop for 
a second mile. On Tuesday, a walk and 
a jog are the training schedule. I- . 
jumping occupies his mount's time on 
Wednesday, then a walk or slow < an 
ter on Thursday and a fast gallop on 
Friday. The week-end training 
mixture of all types of running and 
jumping unless Danny is away at one 
of the steeplechase races. 

Sometimes he devotes another half 
hour to giving his second mount a simi- 
lar workout. Then he has a warmup 
himself by trotting alone down the 
Valley road 2 miles to Falls road anil 
back to his home. 

The only thing Danny does not have 
to do in the morning is feed the five 
horses which are housed in the Brew- 
ster stable. A former English jockey. 
Marcel Le Mason, does the grooming 
and caring for the horses.

Marine Corps Lieutenant. His silks :ire rrd and

Aside from that chore, the timber- 
toppers are the problem and responsi- 
bility of Danny and Walter. 

This rigorous regimen of daily living 
which Danny has set himself is typical 
oi that followed by most of the other 
jockeys, both licensed and unlicensed, 
who provide Marylanders with the 
color and excitement of point-to-point 
races every spring — the My Lady's 
Manor, Grand National, Hunt Cup and 
other events. 

Mr. Brewster's most difficult prob- 
lem, he says, is that of reducing 
weight. On the average, he must com- 
bine dieting, workouts and nights in a 
downtown Baltimore Turkish bath to 
reduce from 175 to 148 pounds before 
a big race. 

"The Turkish baths are the real 
trial," he says. "I spend a whole night, 
sweating and sleeping — and brother, 
it's rough." 

On the day of a race, he follows his 
regular morning schedule and then, 
just before noon, walks around the 
course to make certain he knows it ex- 
actly. Shortly after noon and a light 
luncheon snack, Danny and the other 
gentlemen jockeys of the day are ready 
for the bugle. 

"I never get particularly nervous be- 
fore a race," he says, "but some of the 
jockeys do; it depends on the indi- 

Simon-pure Amateur 

In Maryland there is no purse for 
which to strive, as there is in the other 
states where steeplechase racing is 

"That's what makes this racing so 
successful here, I think," Danny says; 
"the jockeys ride purely for the sport. 
Maryland is also the only state in 
which only amateurs may participate." 

Danny compares Maryland's Hunt 
Cup course with the world's most 
famous one, England's Aintree, for se- 
verity of terrain. "The Hunt is funda- 
mentally just as tough," he comments, 
"but there are more horses in the Ain- 
tree race, and that may make it actually 
more difficult." 

Danny hopes some day to race at 
Aintree, but "it takes a good horse, 
one that could win the Maryland Hunt 
Cup, for instance." 

This year the Brewsters are pinning 
their hopes in the Maryland circuit on 
the famous steeplechase entry Clifton's 
Dan, owned by Mrs. Cochran. Danny 
is also developing a former brush 
jumper — a horse that participates in 
jumping races at regular race tracks — 
named Big Bones, which has been seen 
at Pimlico, Laurel, Bel Air and Timo- 
nium in the past. 

Former brush jumpers and horses 
tnat have been used with the hounds on 
fox hunts make the best timber-top- 
pers, Mr. Brewster says, unless one 
can train them from the 2-year-old 
stage to be exclusively steeplechase 

The biggest day of Danny's riding 
career, so far, was the day in 1948 
when he rode to victory in both races 
of a Saturday schedule, the John Rush 
Streett Memorial and the My Lady's 

He won the Hunters Challenge Cup 
in 1947. The rest of his victories have 
been won in point-to-points outside 

In Maryland it is not necessary to 
be licensed to ride in point-to-points, 
but in other states the riders must be 
accredited by the National Association. 

To obtain a license, a rider must be 
over 16 years of age and must have 
ridden in two recognized steeplechase 
contests. Many of the gentlemen jock- 
eys riding outside Maryland are listed 
as professionals. 

Danny always gets back to the sub- 
ject of reducing. "It seems I'm always 
trying to keep those pounds down," he 
says. "I'm always dehydrated just be- 
fore a race. 

"It's an awful life, but at the same 
time it is wonderful. I eat, sleep and 
breathe it. There's just nothing like a

Thomas E. Miller, Jr., Agriculture, 
'39, 52 Edwards Street, Portland, Maine, 
was impressed more than the average 
reader of MARYLAND by an article in 
a recent issue describing the new 
chapel being erected on the campus as 
a Memorial to Maryland students who, 
in World Wars I and II, gave their 
lives for their country. Noting his own 
name on the list of "Gold Star" alumni 
to be shown in bronze on the chapel, 
Mr. Miller, a la Mark Twain, suggests 
that the report of his death appears to 
have been greatly exaggerated. 

Mr. Miller suggests that the mistake 
in listing his name was no doubt due 
to the fact that he was reported miss- 
ing in action and was, for a long time, 
a prisoner of the Nazis. 

"It is nice to know," writes Mr. 
Miller, "that if the report of my death 
had been true my school and my friends 
would have so remembered me, and," 
Mr. Miller continues, "while some of 
my old classmates sometimes checked 
me off as dead from the collar button 
North and numb from the shoulders 
South this would have been the first 
time they would have backed up that 
opinion in bronze. Possibly comment 
would have been to the effect that that 
would have been the only way in wh'ch 
my name would have been perpetuated 
on the campus." 

"Visiting College Park," concludes 
Mr. Miller, "I was really proud of the 
growth and expansion shown there and 
also want to tell you how much we enjoy 
MARYLAND. It is a fine publication 
and we look forward to its arrival each

Dr. Benjamin defended the need for 
practical training in education while 
Dr. Hutchins argued that schools must

Marketing Forum 

MARKETING students and facul- 
ty of the College of Business 
and Public Administration were hosts 
to approximately 200 Washington and 
Baltimore marketing specialists at a 
meeting' held November 15 on the Col- 
lege Park campus. 

The forum was arragned jointly by 
the Washington and Baltimore chapters 
of the American Marketing Association 
and the student marketing associations 
of Maryland and Johns Hopkins Univ- 
ersities. Closer relationships between 
businessmen of the two cities and stu- 
dents of the university organizations 
were stressed as the theme of the 

Sponsored by the American Market- 
ing Association, national organization 
of marketing executives and university 
teachers, whose membership of 4,000 is 
spread among 33 chapters located in 
key cities of the country, the Novem- 
ber gathering - was the first in the his- 
tory of A.M. A. in which student groups 
met in joint session with the senior 

William T. Snaith, senior partner in 
the New York City firm of Raymond 
Loewy Associates, nationally known 
group of industrial designers, was the 
principal speaker. A specialist in sub- 
urban department store location and 
design, Mr. Snaith discussed changes 
in population and retail trade areas 
which have accounted for the rapid 
growth of large suburban stores and 
shopping' centers. He designed the new 
Woodward & Lothrop Chevy Chase- 
Bethesda department store. Emphasiz- 
ing that although the trend to date has 
produced no unfavorable results on 
sales of downtown stores, the speaker 
stated that some shopping centers in 
outlying areas have grown so large as 
to defeat their purpose. 

Welcoming remarks were extended 
by Dr. J. Freeman Pyle, dean of the 
College of Business and Public Admin- 
istration, who himself has had an active 
career in marketing. 

Dr. J. Allan Cook, coordinator of the 
joint session, presented presidents of 
the participating groups, as follows: 
George Travis, president of the Wash- 
ington chapter; John Weber of the Bal- 
timore chapter; Walter Bram of the 
Maryland association, and Robert 
Donovan of the Johns Hopkins associ- 

Dr. Wilford L. White, vice-president 
of the American Marketing Associa- 
tion, described the development of the 
university associations and introduced 
the guest speaker. 

One of the features of the forum was 
the informal mixer held in the Mary- 
land Room following the address of 
Mr. Snaith. Officers of the participat- 
ing groups indicated that the joint ses- 
sion will be an annual affair.

Delta Sigma Pi 

Baltimore was the scene of installa- 
tion ceremonies of the .Maryland chap- 
ter of Delta Sigma Pi, an International 
Professional Fraternity in the field of 
Commerce and Business Administra- 
tion. Delta Sigma Pi was founded on 
November 7, 1907, at New York Cni- 
versity and now has a total of 78 chap- 
ters throughout the United States and 

The 36 men initiated were at one 
time the Profesisonal Business Club of 
the University of Maryland. It was 
through the strong leadership of Bob 
Wettling and the combined efforts of 
Dr. John Frederick and Prof. Charles 
Taff, both of the College of Business 
Administration, that this petitioning 
group became a chapter of Delta Sigma 

The impressive ceremony lasted all 
afternoon, followed by a fellowship 
hour at the hotel. The installation 
banquet began promptly at 6 p.m., the 
highlight of which was the presenta- 
tion of the Charter by the Grand Presi- 
dent, Walter C. Sehm. Gordon Ander- 
son, the Head Master of Gamma Sigma 
Chapter accepted the Charter. In con- 
clusion various delegates and guests, 
among them Professor James Reid of 
Maryland, were called upon and they 
too, welcomed the new chapter into the 
lanks of Delta Sigma Pi.

This is a first edition of a text writ- 
ten by Dr. Chapin A. Harris, who with 
Dr. Horace Hayden founded the Balti- 
more College of Dental Surgery, the 
first dental school in the world, now 
known as the University of Maryland's 
School of Dentistry. 

Pioneers in Television 

On November 13 the School of Den- 
tistry, in collaboration with the Balti- 
more City Dental Society, presented 
the first telecast ever made of dental 
operations. Transmitted on a closed 
circuit from a clinic at the School, the 
program was viewed by over 500 mem- 
bers of the Baltimore Society in Osier 
Hall of the Medical and Chirurgical 
Faculty Building on Cathedral Street 
and by a large group of students as- 
sembled in a classroom at the School. 

Dr. Harold Golton, President of the 
Society and Associate Professor of 
Oral Diagnosis at Maryland, described 
the telecast as "one of the greatest 
advances made for continuing the post- 
graduate training of dentists in the 
latest techniques." Dr. Harry Levin, 
Chairman of the Society's Program 
Committee and a Maryland alumnus, 
expressed the general reactions of the 
largest meeting in the history of the 
Society, by his comments on the amaz- 
ing detail shown in the telecast of the 
various phases of the program and on 
the demonstrated potentialities of tele- 
vision for classroom instruction, with 
color television giving even greater 
values to the telecasting of dental pro- 

During the telecast, made through 
the facilites of WMAR-TV, the Sun- 
papers station, three dental operations 
were demonstrated by members of the 
Maryland faculty. The telecast was 
made over a high-frequency receiver 
set up by the Chesapeake and Poto- 
mac Telephone Company. Two televis- 
ion cameras were used, one for closeup 
views and the other for full-view shots 
of the clinic area. 

Dr. Brice Dorsey, Professor of Oral 
Surgery, opened the program with a 
clinical demonstration of the technique 
for preparing the mouth surgically for 
the immediate insertion of dentures. 
Dr. Grayson W. Gaver, Professor of 
Dental Prosthesis, discussed and dem- 
onstrated the role of the prosthodontist 
in achieving effective results from the 
immediate denture technique. Dr. Er- 
nest B. Nuttall, Professor of Fixed 
Partial Prosthesis, demonstrated the

At Atlantic City 

Several members of the faculty of 
the School of Dentistry participated in 
the various meetings scheduled during 
the annual convention of the American 
Dental Association held at Atlantic 
City, October 30-November 2. 

Dr. J. Ben Robinson, Dean, a leader 
in many phases of dental activity dur- 
ing the past thirty years, was one of 
the most active men at the convention. 
Dr. Robinson attended a meeting of the 
Council on Dental Education, of which 
he is a charter member. At the meet- 
ing of the American Association of 
Dental Schools he participated in the 
discussion on the possible effects of 
war pressures on the student bodies 
and faculties of the dental schools 
throughout the country. The Amer- 
ican College of Dentists at its annual 
convocation presented Dr. Robinson

attended the Past Presidents Lunch- 
eon. Dr. Robinson also participated in 
a panel discussion on the question of 
"The Use of Auxiliary Personnel in 
the Promotion of Dentistry for Chil- 
dren." This discussion was a major 
feature of the meeting of the American 
Society of Dentistry for Children. 

Dr. Harry B. McCarthy, Director of 
Clinics, presented a paper on "Insur- 
ance and Legal Considerations of the 
Dentist" before the Section on Practice

Five Coeds at School of Dentistry 

The present student body of "the 
School of Dentistry includes only five 
girls, less than two percent of the reg- 
istration. However, in very few years 
of the 110 years of the School have 
there been as many women students as 
now grace the halls, laboratories and 
clinics of the oldest dental college in 
the world. 

Elizabeth Ann Schneider '51, of 
Washington, D. C, received her pre- 

dental training at College Park. A 
brother of .Miss Schneider, Dr. .1. G. 
Schneider, is a graduate <>i" the George- 
town Dental School. 

Pilar Reguero-Caballero, '52 of San 

turce, I'. K., is a graduate of the Uni- 
versity of Puerto Rico. 

The three ^i lis in the freshman class 

t 1954 1 entered the School with U.S. 

degrees. Luisa Maria Mablonado, of 

Ponce, I'. R., graduated from the Uni- 
versity of Puerto Rico. Miss Maldo- 
nado is the only Puerto Rican in her 
class. Barbara Ellen Seifert, of Bir- 
mingham, Ala., is an alumna of the 
College of William and Mary. Nann 
Alix Wickwire, of Miami, Fla., is a 
graduate of the University of Miami. 
Fifty-One Colleges, Class of 1951 

The entering Class of 1954, 110 
strong, promises to be an outstanding 
class; it was carefully selected from a 
large field of applicants. One of the 
many interesting facts about the fresh- 
man roster is the unusually large num- 
ber of predental schools represented. 
The University at College Park, with 
21, has the largest representation. 
Fifty other colleges or universities 
have one or more men on the 1954 roll: 

American International (2), Baylor, 
Boston University, Brown (2), Citadel 
(2), Clemson, Connecticut (2), Dart- 
mouth, Delaware, Drew, Duke (2), 
Emory (2), Florida Southern, George 
Washington (3), Harvard, Hawaii, In- 
diana, Johns Hopkins (2), Kentucky,

Dr. Cairns 

THE appointment of Dr. Gordon M. 
Cairns to be Dean of Agriculture 
in the University of Maryland, and, in 
that capacity, virtually to head up all 
agricultural work in the state, Presi- 
dent H. C. Byrd announced, is but one 
of several changes in the agricultural 
organization in the 
University of Mary- 
land creating virtu- 
ally a new top align- 
ment of executive 
positions in that 

Dr. Cairns be- 
comes the successor 
to Dr. Thomas B. 
Symons who retired 
from the same posi- 
tion in September. 

Besides Dr. 
Cairns, other ap- 
poin t m e n t s and 
changes are: 

Dr. James M. Gwin, now in charge of 
Poultry Extension in the Department 
of Poultry Husbandry in the Univer- 
sity of Maryland will become Director 
of the Agricultural Extension Service. 

Dr. William B. Kemp, present Direc- 
tor of the Agricultural Experiment 
Station, will take 
on, in addition to 
his present work, 
the position of Di- 
rector of Instruction 
for the College of 
Agriculture, a posi- 
tion that in ordinary 
circumstances would 
carry with it the 
title of Dean. 

Dr. Kemp was 
also elected chair- 
man of the State 
Soil Conservation 
Committee, vice Dr. 
Symons. Dr. Kemp had been acting 
chairman since the retirement of Dr. 
Symons and has been a member of the 
committee since 1943. He becomes the 
second chairman of the organization 
since it first was set up in 1937. Dr. 
Symons had held the post from the 

Dr. Kemp has been connected with 
Maryland agriculture steadily since his 
graduation from the University in 

Dr. Irvin C. Haut, now Head of the 
Department of Horticulture, becomes 
Assistant Director of the Agricultural 
Experiment Station and will succeed 
to the directorship upon the retirement 
of Dr. Kemp on June 30, 1951. 

Dr. Ronald A. Bamford, who has 
been Associate Dean of the College of 
Agriculture and Head of the Depart- 
ment of Botany, becomes Dean of the 
Graduate School. He will also retain 
his professorship as Head of the De- 
partment of Botany. 

Professor Paul E. Nystrom, who has 
been Associate Director of the Exten- 
sion Service, will leave the College of 

Dr. Kemp 

Agriculture temporarily to become As- 
sistant to the President for the current 
year. Upon retirement of Dr. Kemp on 
June 30, 1951, Professor Nystrom will 
take over duties as Director of Instruc- 
tion in the College of Agriculture. 

All the appointees began their new 
duties immediately. 

Dr. Cairns is a graduate of Cornell 
University and has his Doctor's degree 
from the same institution. He served 
for awhile in dairy extension work in 
the State of New York, but shortly 
after receiving his Doctor's degree 
went to the University of Maine as 
Head of the Department of Dairying. 
He left Maine in 1945 to come to the 
University of Maryland as Head of the 
Dairy Department. Dr. Cairns has been 
Chairman of the Production Section of 
the American Dairy Science Associa- 
tion and Chairman of the Board of 
Awards of that association. He is also 
a member of the American Society of 
Animal Production, a member of Sigma 
Xi and Alpha Zeta, honorary scientific 
and agricultural fraternities. 

Dr. Cairns will do double duty for 
the remainder of the year and will, in 
addition to his duties as Dean of Agri- 
culture, continue to serve as Head of 
the Dairy Department, which position 
he will give up at the end of the cur- 
rent year. Dr. Cairns is 39 years of 
age and is probably one of the young- 
est men in the nation to be elevated 
in his State to a position of this im- 
portance in agriculture. 

Dr. Gwin received his Bachelor of 
Science degree from the University of 
Connecticut and his 
Doctor's degree 
from Cornell Uni- 
versity. He is rec- 
ognized as one of 
the outs t a n d i n g 
poultry exten s i o n 
men in America. He 
has had large ex- 
perience in the com-

as in education.

ment officer for the First French Army 
and Seventh American Army. At the 
end of hostilities in the European The-

of the University 

bon with three Combat stars, the 
Bronze Star, the French Croix de

Medal. He retired from active service 
in the Army in May, 1946, and returned 
in the' same year to the University of 

Bamford, new Dean 
School, was born in 
England. His entire 
education, however, 
has been in this 
country. He also is 
a graduate of the 
University of Conn- 
ecticut and received 
his Doctor's degree 
from Columbia Uni- 
versity in 1931. He 
came to the Univer- 
sity of Maryland as 
Assistant Professor 
of Botany in 1931. 

Dr. William B. 
Kemp is a graduate 
of Maryland of the 
class of 1912. He received his Doctor's 
degree at American University in 1928, 
although a part of his graduate work 
was done at Johns Hopkins University 
and West Virginia University. Dr. 
Kemp first served at the University of 
Maryland as Head of the Department 
of Agronomy. He has been serving as 
Director of the Agricultural Experi- 
ment Station for several years. He is 
clue for retirement next summer. 

Dr. Irvin C. Haut, who will become 
assistant to Dr. Kemp for the remain- 
der of the current 
year and will accede 
to Dr. Kemp's posi- 
tion upon the lat- 
ter's retirement next 
year, is a graduate 
of the University of 
Idaho. He took his 
Master of Science 
degree from the 
State College of 
Washington and his 
Doctor's degree from 
the University o f 
Maryland. Dr. Haut 
taught at the Okla- Dr. Haut 

homa A. & M. College for three years, 
but returned to the University of Mary- 
land as Associate Professor in 1936. 
In 1946 he was appointed Head of the 
Department of Horticulture. 

Professor Paul E. Nystrom, who will 
become Assistant to the President for 
the current year, is 
a graduate of the 
University of Cali- 
fornia and received 
his Master of Sci- 
ence degree from 
the University o f 
Maryland. He is 
currently finishing 
his thesis for the 
doctoral degree at 
Harvard University. 
One of Professor 
Nystrom's outstand- 
ing jobs for the 
State was during 
World War II when he was State Su- 
pervisor of the Emergency Farm Labor 
Program. It is expected that at the end 

Prof. Nystrom 


of the current year, after he has fin- 
ished his doctoral work at Harvard, 
Professor Nystrom will return to the 
College of Agriculture as Director of 
Instruction in charge of all educational 
work in the College of Agriculture. 

The ahove men appointed, with Dr. 
Arthur L. Brueckner, present Director 
of the Livestock Sanitary Service, will 
serve as a high policy committee on the 
direction of agricultural affairs in 
Maryland. This high policy hoard will 
be composed of men representing the 
dairy, animal and poultry fields, as well 
as the fruit, vegetable and field crops 
side of agriculture. Also in the group 
will be represented one of the best men 
in the country, Dr. tiwin, in the prob- 
lems of management and marketing. 
This is the first time in the history of 
agriculture in Maryland when all the 
large agricultural groups have been 
represented in the high executive posi- 

While the University has lost the 
outstanding leadership of Dr. Symons, 
which could hardly be replaced, it will 
gain a good deal in bringing together a 
group of men who have shown great 
ability in their particular fields, and 
who not only understand, but have 
proved their ability in the managerial 
side of agriculture. It is expected that 
the related thinking and actions of this 
composite group will serve to a large 
measure to replace the loss of such a 
dynamic personality as Dr. Symons. 

Every member of the appointed 
group of top administrative personali- 
ties has already won for himself a 
large place in Maryland agriculture. 
Three of them have recently been of- 
fered positions in either commercial 
work or in other universities at salaries 
far in excess of the salaries they are 
now receiving at the University of 
Maryland, and greater than they will 
receive in their new positions. 

It is expected that, without in any 
way decreasing the services in exten- 
sion, a great deal more attention in the 
future will be given, comparatively 
speaking, to research and education. It 
is in the various fields of research that 
the future great advancements in agri- 
culture are certain to be found. Pro- 
cessing, particularly quick freezing, 
packaging, storing, and marketing 
foods, are in their infancy and will be 
given larger attention. Also, more ef- 
fort will be placed on research in ani- 
mal diseases and their relation to hu- 
man ills. 

In short, the University is trying to 
foresee the needs of agricultural pro- 
duction, processing and marketing, and 
is setting up an organization to meet 
the needs that a change from almost 
complete emphasis on production means 
to the agricultural industries and the 
people as a whole. 

Samuel T. Royer 

Samuel T. Royer, Jr., of Thurmont, 
has been appointed a member of Selec- 
tive Service Board No. 46 of Freder- 
ick County. Mr. Royer received his 
degree from Maryland's College of Ag- 
riculture 1931 and taught vocational 
agriculture in Pennsylvania for eight 
years. Since 1940 he has been a part- 

ner in the Thurmont firm of <iall & 

Smith and he also operates the Hillside 

Turkey Farm, near Thurmont. H< 

married and has five children. 

Tobacco Queen 

At Annapolis two Maryland coeds 
were chosen Maryland TobaCCO Qui 

and runner-up for this honor, by the 
state tobacco growers and warehouse- 
men. Pat West, the queen and Diary 
Brooke, her runner-up, are in Home Eco- 
nomics. Both are residents of Prince 
Georges County. 

They were judged on poise, beauty, 
charm, and educational background, 
and residence in one of the Ave to- 
bacco-producing counties of southern 
Maryland as well as membership in a 
tobacco growing family. 

Pat represented Maryland tobacco 
growers in the annual tobacco festival 
at Richmond, Virginia. She was pre- 
sented a new wardrobe and traveling 
expenses to Richmond by the ware- 
housemen and members of the state's 
tobacco associations. 

Dairy Conference 

The sixth annual Maryland Dairy 
Technology Conference was held at the 
University in November. Milk and ice 
cream plant operators and employees, 
milk inspectors and sanitarians, and 
dairy fieldmen attended. 

Research workers, other scientists 
and men of long experience in the field 
of dairy technology spoke during the 
2-day conference, among them Dr. P. 
H. Tracy, a well-known technologist 
from the University of Illinois. 
Botanical Society of Washington 

The 388th meeting of the Botanical 
Society of Washington was held in the 
Botany Department in November. The 
members set up demonstrations of 
their research work. Among other ex- 
hibits, polyploid blueberries were shown; 
new methods of seed testing were dem- 
onstrated; samples of Zoysia, a prom- 
ising new turf grass was on display; 
and a demonstration of new herbicides 
was made. 

The laboratories of the Botany De- 
partment were open for inspection, and 
refreshments were served by members 
of the department.

The Maryland team placed third at this year's Southern Inter-Collegiate Dairy Cattle Judging 
Contest at Knoxville, Tennessee. The team which won a trophy for first placing in the judging of 
Jerseys was coached by Dr. Gordon N. Cairns (left), head of the Dairy Department. Team members, 
left to right, are William Curry, Queen Anne; James Moxley, West Friendship; Earl Spurrier, Union 
Bridge; and Ralph McCauley, Hagerstown. Ralph MacDonald of Rising Sun, who is not shown in the 
picture replaced McCauley in other contests. 

Watson has reason to be proud of his 
record as a combat U. S. Marine. As a 
member of the famed Fifth Marine 
Regiment he took part in the World 
War I battles of Chateau-Thierry, Ar- 
gonne, Soissons, St. Mihiel and Bel- 
leau Wood. He had joined the Leath- 
ernecks in early 1917 and, after the 
armistice, served in the Army of Occu- 
pation in Germany. 

Upon his return to the United States, 
Mr. Watson became associated with 
Keystone Supply and Manufacturing 
Company, Philadelphia, wholesalers of 
plumbing and' heating supplies. In 
1922 he became a salesman for this 
concern at their Bethlehem, Pa., 
branch. In 1927 Mr. Watson took over 
as Reading branch manager for the 
Hajoca Corporation, also wholesale 
plumbing and heating suppliers. In 
1934 he was appointed manager of the 
Roslyn branch and Government Sales 
Department of the Hajoca Corporation 
in Washington. 

Mr. Watson purchased the James A. 
Messer Company at 1206 K Street, 
N.W., Washington, D. C, in 1940 and, 
serving as this plumbing and heating 
supply business' president, he expand- 
ed its operations to cover branches at 
4th and Channing Streets, N.E., 
Washington, and 1680 Clough Street 
in Baltimore, Maryland. 

In 1947 he organized and became 
president of the Watson Company, a 
Maryland corporation which manufac- 
tures soil pipe and fittings. The Wat- 
son Company's plan is at Bowie. 

The Watson's home is at "New 
Year's Gift," Glenwood, Howard Coun- 
ty, Maryland. 

Mr. Watson's avocation is raising 
Hereford beef cattle.

Maryland l-H Team 

Maryland's 4-H livestock judging 

team won at the State Fair at Tinio- 

nium, the Atlantic Rural Exposition at 

Richmond, Virginia, and the interstate 

championship Eastern Livestock Show 
at Timonium. 

All four team members are from 
Montgomery County. They are. Har- 
old W. Mullinix, Jr., 18, Mt. Airy; 
Millard Lethridge, 1!), Ashton; Donald 
Hobbs, Jr., Sandy Spring; and Herbert 
King, 18, Gaithersburg. Coaching the 
team were Boyd T. Whittle of the 
University of Maryland Animal Hus- 
bandry Department and Roscoe Whipp. 
assistant county agent of Montgomery 

The boys not only emerged as cham- 
pions on a team basis but also scored 
as the three highest individual judges 
in the entire contest. Harold Mullinix 
was first with 551 points, Millard Leth- 
ridge followed with 535 points, then 
came Donald Hobbs with 528 points. 
Herbert King was the team's alternate. 

Hobbs was also the high individual 
in horse judging, while Mullinix tied 
for first in cattle judging. As a team 
the Maryland boys racked up 1,614 
points, 73 more points than the second- 
place Indiana team. Other states com- 
peting in the contest and the order of 
their placings were New York, Penn- 
sylvania, Virginia, and North Carolina. 

Maryland's victory was the first ever 
chalked up by the Free State entry at 
the Eastern National. The team was 
presented a silver trophy which they 
may hold for one year and a one-hun- 
dred-dollar award. 

In Europe 

Recent visitors to the Paris Euro- 
pean headquarters of the Marshall 
Plan included Miss Venia M. Kellar, 
Assistant Director of Extension Ser- 
vice, University of Maryand; Mrs. 
Abram Pearce of Glyndon, Mrs. James 
H. Pyle of Pikesville, and Mrs. Addie 
Wooden of Reisterstown, who stopped 
in Paris enroute home from the Inter- 
national Countr y 
Women's Conference 
held in Copenhagen. 
They were part of 
a group of 33 Amer- 
ican farm women 
who made an in- 
spection tour of Eu- 
ropean farms after 
attending the Den- 
mark meeting of 
women leaders in 
agriculture. During 
the tour, the Mary- 
land delegates made 
a first-hand study of farm conditions 
in England, Sweden, Denmark, Ger- 
many, Holland, Italy, Switzerland and 

In Paris the Maryland delegates 
were briefed on the Marshall Plan's 
contribution to European recovery, 
and on the Economic Cooperation Ad- 
ministration's food and agriculture pro- 
gram. Among the speakers who ad- 
dressed the farm women's group were 
Ambassador C. Tyler Wood, ECA 
Deputy Special Representative in Eu- 
rope; Ben Thibodeaux, food and agri- 
culture director; Raymond Ogg, assis- 

Aiiss Kellar 

taut to Thibodeaux and I'm mci A i 

ican Farm Bureau leader. 
Thibodeaux told the women farm 

leaders that the food problem has dis- 
appeared in Europe as a result of an 
amazingly rapid agricultural recovery 

and large imports of foodstuffs paid 

for with Marshall Plan dollars. 

Thanks to the ERP, the volume of 
agricultural production this year w a 

slightly above pre-war, the ECA food 
and agriculture official declared. Only a 

year ago, he pointed out, food was the 
number one problem in Europe. Euro- 
pean agriculture recovered twice as 
fast after World War II than in the 
period following the first war because 
of Marshall Plan help, he said. 

American farmers have a big stake 
in increasing U. S. imports, because 
Europe can buy our farm surpluses 
after li)52 only if they earn dollars by 
selling us more of their goods, Thibo- 
deaux stated. 

Lloyd Simpkins 
Lloyd Simpkins, of Somerset County, 
an oyster packer, recently was elected 
to the House of Delegates, one of the 
youngest members of the 1951 State 

After graduating from the Univer- 
sity of Maryland's College of Agricul- 
ture in 1947, Mr. Simpkins taught 
adult courses in agriculture for two 
years at Princess Anne High School, 
and one of the subjects he emphasized 
was agricultural economics, his major 
in college. He is now a second year 
student in the School of Law. 

"It's more important than at any 
period in our history," he said, "be- 
cause the Federal 
Gove rnment has 
given so much help 
to farmers in subsi- 
dies and price sup- 
ports that the suc- 
cessful farmer to- 
day must have a 
good idea of what 
the Administration's 
attitude is toward 

Today, a farmer 
must keep abreast of the constantly 
changing schedules of Federal price 
supports in order to know what he can 
plant profitably, Mr. Simpkins said. 

As an oyster packer, he feels that 
unless a strong conservation program 
is adopted to halt the accelerating rate 
of depletion of the State-owned oyster 
beds, the State may be compelled even- 
tually to lease the beds to private in- 
terests to prevent the destruction of 
the industry in Maryland. 

Mr. Simpkins has very definite ideas 
on such issues as the sales tax, oyster 
conservation and real-estate assess- 

He believes that the system of as- 
sessing commercial properties for tax 
purposes should be revised so that the 
assessments will be based upon the 
earning power of the property instead 
of its size. 

"If I own a 100-acre farm and you 
own 50 acres with a restaurant on it 
and make twice the income I make 
from the farm, then why should I have 
to pay twice the real-estate tax that

Asserting that "all problems can be 
solved through education," Mr. Simp- 
kins favors a revision in the high- 
school curriculum so that the courses 
taught will be geared to the immediate 
needs of the community. 

"Why should college preparatory 
courses be emphasized when only two 
percent of high-school graduates go on 
to college?" he asked. 

While such basic courses as English 
and writing should be taught, Mr. 
Simpkins believes, for example, that 
in an agricultural and sea-food com- 
munity, the curriculum should include 
such courses as seamanship, naviga- 
tion, conservation of sea-food resources 
and agricultural economics. 

Mr. Simpkins owns a 30-acre oyster 
bed in Monie Bay. He purchased his 
oyster-packing plant from his father, 
Thomas Simpkins, five years ago for 
$8,500. It has room for 39 shuckers 
and last year packed about 20,000 gal- 
lons of oysters, with a sales value of 
about $10*0,000. 

The delegate-elect plans to continue 
operating the plant while he attends 
law school and serves in the Legisla- 
ture. At present, he lives at the Bal- 
timore Y.M.C.A. and visits his home 
on week ends. 

Last summer, Mr. Simpkins sailed 
his new sailboat "every day that I 
didn't play baseball." It is 40 feet 
long, has a 11-foot beam and is equip- 
ped with a small auxiliary gasoline en- 
gine. Mr. Simpkins had it built for 

He enlisted in the Navy in 1941, 
spent three years as a tail gunner in 
the Pacific, and was then assigned to 
a flight school where he got his wings 
as a naval fighter pilot. 

A bachelor, Mr. Simpkins explained 
his marital status, thus: 

"Don't have the time, nor the money, 
nor any offers."

A Forty-Year Testimonial Banquet, 
Inc., scheduled for 6,000 guests in Bal- 
timore in honor of Dr. H. C. Byrd, 
president of the University of Mary- 
land, was called off at Dr. Byrd's re- 

A letter announcing that the com- 
mittee in charge of the affair was ac- 
ceding to Dr. Byrd's request was sent 
to him by James M. Swartz, chairman of 
the executive board of the banquet 

The letter said, in part: 

"The reasons you have cited as un- 
derlying your request for abandonment 
of the testimonial are tremendously 
moving to those associated with the af- 

"First, your concern with the world 
situation and the university's projects 
which relate to it is naturally of first 
importance to every citizen. 

"Second, your wish to concentrate 
whole-heartedly on administration of 
the University's affairs ... is surely a 
wish which must engage our respect." 

Mr. Swartz's letter added, however, 
that, even with the testimonial can- 
celled, Dr. Byrd's many friends and ad- 
mirers, who had planned the party, will 
continue to honor him, not only on the 
date of the dinner but vear 'round. 


Metropolitan Opera baritone Robert 
Merrill appeared in the Coliseum with 
the Mixed Chorus, for a concert with 
several operatic arias, followed by a 
modern arrangement of English folk 

The program included "Chanson 
Bachique" from Thomas' opera "Ham- 
let," sung by Merrill, Maundeis "Bor- 
der Ballad," sung by the Men's Glee 
Club, and the Negro spiritual, "So's I 
Can Write My Name," rendered by the 
Women's Chorus. Following these se- 
lections, Merrill and the Mixed Chorus 
combined voices in "Old Man River," by 

Merrill began his musical career 
when he was 10, following in the foot- 
steps of his mother, who was a concert 
singer. At 14 he sang in New York 
choirs and amateur singing groups as 
a boy soprano. 

In April 1945 the Met Baritone ap- 
peared on the Metropolitan Opera Au- 
ditions of the Air, singing his way to 
first prize, a contract with the Metro- 
politan Opera Association. 

He made his first operatic showing in 
"Aida." Since then he has sung in 
many operatic roles, including the 
famous role of Germout in "La Travi- 
ata," for which he won the annual Re- 
corded Music Award.

From Alaska 

FROM Anchorage, Alaska, Anna 
Margaret ("Amy") Clark Dale, 
pens the following colorful description 
of Alaska. The letter comes to 
MARYLAND readers through the 
courtesy of Dean of Women Adele H. 
Stamp. "Amy" Clark is the daughter 
of alumnus "Tater" Clark, prominent in 
University athletic circles. Amy writes: 

"Anchorage, Alaska. What is it 
like? Well, take any town out of a 
western movie, move it to the flat area 
between the Chugach Mountains and 
Cook Inlet, cover it with snow, cool it 
down to a zero temperature, and fan it 
periodically with 15 to 25 mph. winds. 
add a pinch of modern living conveni- 
ences. Pour in a population of 30,000 
people — people who throw up houses 
as quickly and cheaply as possible; it 
makes no difference how they look, 
someone else always has a smaller, more 
unattractive place to call home. Bring 
along the Main street lined with 
saloons, only double its length. Bring 
the bearded men, but change their cow- 
boy boots to muklues and their ten- 
gallon to beaver hats, dress them al- 
ways for the weather rather than the 
occasion. Bring along the same at- 
mosphere of a fluid social strata, of 
temporary occupancy with high prices 
and high wages. Move the clock up to 
date and you have an idea of Anchor-

five days and includes a large variety 
of activities: plays, dog team races, 
ski jumping, snowshoe races, native 
dances, ice carnival, dances, bingo, 
parades, exhibits, basketball and treas- 
ure hunts. 'Fun for all, all for fun' 
the motto. All the men of the city 
sport either beards or 'Beardless 
Booster' buttons. 

"One can have a hideous time find- 
ing a job. Most everything closes in the 
winter time. Nothing is advertised in 
the papers except for housekeepers and 
baby sitters. There are no teaching 
vacancies, so I substituted a couple of 
times. Children attend school three 
days a week from 8.45 until 4. The 
classes I taught were held in Quonset 
huts. Then three new schools were 
finished and children went back on a 
five-day week.

Miss Criltenton, twenty year old Delta Gamma pledge, is a transfer student from .Mary Washing- 
ton College in Fredericksburg. Virginia and is now a junior in Arts & Sciences. She is majoring in 
English and minoring in German. 

Born in Evanston. Illinois, Candy has lived in all but ten of the forty-eight slates and is cur- 
rently residing in Greenwich, Connecticut. 

Modeling professionally since she was ten. Candy has found time to enjoy such sports as swim- 
ming and riding. 

When asked her interests she said. "I love just about everything in general, especially Mary- 

only to find 12 girls there ahead of me. 
By 9 o'clock our number had grown to 
25, and more were coming when I left. 
I had seen it in the movies, but never 
suspected I'd be in a line like that. 
Monday, LaBow, Haynes Co. of Alaska. 
Inc., called Bob and asked if I'd be 
interested in working in an insurance 
office. They had obtained my name 
from the radio station. Tuesday I had 
an interview and Wednesday morning 
I settled down to an atmosphere of 
bonds, surety companies, liabilities, and 
extended coverages. I have learned a 
lot and they are interesting. The U. S. 
Government owns and runs the rail- 
road and the communication system. 
Fort Richardson, which is only five 
miles away, has a decided influence on 
the city. 

"It seems as if we are always busy. 
Working takes more time and energy 
than I had remembered. Our social 
life seems to center around bridge, a 
good indoor sport. There is an active 
ski club in Anchorage. Bob has been 
getting his exercise by playing basket- 
ball on the Elks basketball team. There 
are five city teams which play about 
twice a week. We get our daily exer- 
cise by walking to work and home for 
lunches (12 blocks). We went ice fish- 
ing. I was afraid to walk on the sur- 
face until I saw the hole Bob had to 
chop through 18 inches of ice. W T e 
caught four rainbow keepers. Moose 

are numerous in this country. The 
quota is one moose per year per hun- 
ter. We have leased a 5 acre homestead 
—$10.00 down, $10.00 rent for the fust 
year and if we build a livable cabin on it 
in a year's time, it is ours for $75.00. We 
tramped around in the snow for three 
hours one Sunday trying to find the site- 
open for filing. Since there are no mark- 
ers or roads it was rather difficult to 
tell where we were or what we were 
looking at, but we looked. Now that we 
have filed we are more anxious to find 
our site. There is a good deal of swamp 
land around here, but it is difficult to 
determine its boundary when all is cov- 
ered with about three feet of snow. We 
are just keeping our fingers crossed and 
hoping we have not purchased a lake 
bottom. At any rate. Bob is going to 
night home builders class to be ready 
for the spring thaw.

IN the world of today there is a 
need for physical fitness, health, 
and recreational ingenuity. Recent 
years have seen a growing demand for 
well-trained physical educators, recre- 
ational leaders, and health educators 
who can help America meet this need 
— for both peace and war. The Uni- 
versity of Maryland has consistently 
been outspoken in its conviction that 
physical education and athletics are 
extremely important aspects of the to- 
tal educative process, and has concern- 
ed itself with preparing teachers in 
these and related areas. 

In 1949, Dean L. M. Fraley assumed 
leadership of the newly founded Col- 
lege of Physical Education, Recreation, 
and Health. Since that time the Col-

in addition, provides a program for 
2500 freshmen and sophomore men and

sity are now active in the intramural

classes, the young men and women not 
only participate in athletic sports, but 
also have opportunity to learn a va- 
riety of sports and rhythmic skills 
which will be useful in leisure, both 
while in school, and after graduation. 
These skills include those provided in 
such sports as bowling, folk, social, and 
modern dancing, golf, gymnastics, and 
others according to the student's choos- 
ing. Interest in the College's optional 
recreation program is reflected in the 
large number of students now partici- 
pating in the intramural sports pro- 
gram under the direction of Jim Kehoe. 
This program includes all of the popu- 
lar athletic sports in season. Dave 
Field's well-known Gymkana troupe, a 
skillful recreational gymnastics group, 
now numbers fifty men and women and 
is putting on gymnastic performances 
throughout this region. 

Growing interest in scientific re- 
search in physical education has led 
the College to institute a research lab- 
oratory. Studies being conducted by 
staff members and graduate students 
include investigating problems of car- 
diovascular changes in various kinds of 
sports activities, emotional disturb- 
ances associated with competitive ath- 
letics, and mechanics of weightlifting. 
Analysis and validation of physical 
education activities as required the 
use of precision electrical and stress 
instruments in this field. 

The professional training program 
of the College has received national 
recognition for the thoroughness and 
scope of its curriculum offerings. The 
undergraduate courses conform with 
the standards set up by the Jackson 
Mills National Conference on Physical 
Education, and the graduate courses 
have been reorganized to meet the rec- 
ommendations of the Pere Marquette 
Conference on Graduate Study in Phys- 
ical Education. Both undergraduate 
and graduate students entering the 

College may mow De confidenl of receiv- 
ing professional preparation that will 

qualify them for the best available po 
sitions in the area of their choice. Fur 
thermore, physical educators in the 

area may take advantage of the exten- 
sion and summer course cycles in order 

to fulfil course requirements for gradu- 
ate degrees (Master's or Doctorate) on 

a part-time basis. 

A number Of new teachers have been 
added to the College staff beginning 
with the fall semester. They include 
Dr. Benjamin Massey from the Uni- 
versity of Illinois, Dr. Warren Johnson 
from Denver University and Boston 
University, Dr. Ellen Harvey from 
Frostburg State Teachers College and 
the University of Oregon, Miss Louise 
Gladish from the University of Tennes- 
see, the University of North Carolina, 
and the University of Chicago, Miss 
Martha Haverstick from the University 
of Wisconsin, Miss Roslyn Garfield 
from the City College of New York, 
Miss Louise Howarth from the Uni- 
versity of Minnesota, and National 
Park College, and Miss Molly Lynn, a 
former student of Hanya Holm and 
Charles Weidman, noted dance teach- 

In the modern world of effort saving 
devices, we are being forcefully reawak- 
ened to our need for physical activities — 
satisfying activities that will increase 
our vitality for the rigors of peace and 
war. The College of Physical Educa- 
tion, Recreation, and Health, is attempt- 
ing to provide its students with the 
knowledge and skills necessary for en- 
joying and teaching sound health and 
physical competence.

Senator-elect Butler and Governor-elect McKeldin, received their degrees from the School of Law, 
University of Maryland, as did also newly elected Attorney-General Hall Hammond. 

Jjichool of 


By Kenneth S. Reiblich 

John Marshall Butler 

SENATOR-ELECT John Marshall 
Butler, who defeated Senator 
Millard E. Tydings in the November 
elections is, like Senator Tydings, a 
graduate of the University of Mary- 
land. He graduated from Maryland's 
School of Law and was admitted to the 
bar in 1926. 

Mr. Butler's record is an unbroken 
succession of successes, although he 
was not too well known outside of Bal- 
timore. A poor boy who went to work 
in a factory at 11, he managed to put 
himself through Johns Hopkins where 
he was an outstanding tackle on the 
football team. He married the daugh- 
ter of a wealthy and socially promi- 
nent Baltimore family and became 
partner of one of its leading law firms. 

Before being nominated he made no 
secret about how he stood on the Mar- 
shall Plan, on the Atlantic pact and on 
arming Western Europe. He was for 
them all. 

Until six years ago when a spinal 
disc slipped and he had to undergo an 
operation, he was one of Baltimore's 
best golfers. He turned in scores in 
the low 70's. He can still break 85. 

Much of Mr. Butler's life has been 
an uphill battle. Born in Baltimore on 
July 21, 1897, he sold newspapers as a 
boy and then took a job in a mattress 
factory at $3 a week. Lack of finances 
forced him to quit high school and take 
a job as office boy. 

In World War I he went overseas 
with the 110th Field Artillery of the 
29th Division. He was overseas 20 
months and came back a corporal. 

He studied nights to make up lost 
schooling so he could enter Johns Hop- 
kins, where he stayed for two years be- 
fore going into the real estate business. 

Then he decided to become a lawyer 
and studied at night at the University 
of Maryland School of Law until he re- 
ceived his degree. 

He became associated with the Balti- 
more firm of Venable, Baetjer & How- 
ard in 1927. Twelve years later he 
became a partner. 

In 1926 he married Miss Marie Lou- 
ise Abell of the Baltimore Sunpapers 
family. They have two sons and a 

During the recent campaign, the Bal- 
timore Sunpapers supported Senator 
Tydings over Mr. Butler. 

Theodore R. McKeldin 

Maryland's Governor-elect, Theodore 
Roosevelt McKeldin, former Mayor of 
Baltimore is, like Senator-elect Butler, 
a University of Maryland alumnus. He 
received his degree from the School of 
Law in 1925. 

Mr. McKeldin, who scored an impres- 
sive victory over Governor Wm. Pres- 
ton Lane, Jr., is a South Baltimore boy 
who like Senator-elect Butler, made the 
grade the hard way. He was defeated 
in his first try for mayor against How- 
ard W. Jackson in 1939. In 1943, how- 
ever, he tried again and with a 20,000 
vote majority, prevented Mr. Jackson 
from serving a fifth term. 

He revised the city's outmoded char- 
ter, obtained the funds for Baltimore's 
new Friendship International Airport, 
and borrowed twenty-nine million for 
new schools. 

Mr. McKeldin was born in 1901, the 
youngest of 11 children. He first 
aspired to the ministry. He is sought 
after as a speaker. 

He finished high school in YMCA 
night classes while working as an office 
boy at $20 a week and supplementing 
his income by hard labor as a grave 
digger. After graduating from the 
School of Law he talked himself, in 
1927, into the job of secretary to Mayor 
William Broening. He tried for Gov- 
ernor in 1942 and 1946 and was de- 
feated by Gov. Herbert R. O'Conor and 
Gov. Lane successively by compara- 
tively narrow margins. 

As governor, he will have two Demo- 
crats with him on the all-important 
three-man Board of Public Works, and 
Democratic majorities in the two 
houses of the State legislature at An-

paper urged the election, respectively,

Charles A. Masson 

Charles A. Masson, president of 
Masson Forwarding Company, was 
guest speaker at a joint meeting of the 
Marketing and Propeller Clubs at Col- 
lege Park. 

Masson spoke on the various aspects 
of freight forwarding. The company 
president, a 1926 graduate of the Uni- 
versity Law School, saw active duty as 
a pilot in both World Wars and re- 
ceived several citations for his sei'vice. 

More recently Masson has served as 
chairman of the Harbor and Aviation 
Committee of the Baltimore City 
Council and of the Airport Zoning 
Board of Appeals. The Masson For- 
warding Company is peculiar in that 
it includes the functions of house bro- 
kerage and steamship agency, . along 
with its regular forwarding capacity 
Senator O'Conor 

Senator O'Conor, a graduate of the 
University of Maryland Law School, 
and Loyola College is one of five men 
not actively associated with the or- 
ganization who have been appointed to 
the McCormick Advisory Council by 
the Board of Directors of McCormick 
and Company, Inc., Baltimore, to as- 
sist it in formulating and discharging 
the plans, policies and management of 
the corporation, Charles P. McCormick, 
president of the world's largest spice 
and extract house, announced. 

Appointed with Senator O'Conor 
were: G. C. A. Anderson, head of the 
firm Anderson & Barnes, attorneys at 
law, Baltimore; Chester O. Fischer, 
vice president of the Massachusetts 
Mutual Life Insurance Co., Springfield, 
Mass.; Charles S. Garland, partner, 
Alexander Brown & Sons, investment 
bankers, Baltimore; William L. Mc- 
Grath, president of the Williamson 
Heater Company, Cincinnati, Ohio. The 
other members of the McCormick Ad- 
visory Council, all active in the com- 


pany, are George M. Armor, Vice 
President; A. E. Badertscher, Chief 
Entomologist; and C. Leonard Fardwell, 
Sales Analyst and Legislation Advisor. 
Senator O'Conor was the youngest 
State's Attorney ever to be elected in 
Baltimore City. He held the office 
from 1925 until 1934, when he became 
Attorney General. In 1938, Mr. 
O'Conor was elected Governor, an oilier 
he held for two terms, and in 1946, he 
was chosen United States Senator, suc- 
ceeding George L. Radeliffe. While 
Governor of Maryland, Senator O'Con- 
or was named Chairman of the Gover- 
nors' Conference and President of the 
Council of State Governments. He is 
one of the few members of the Senate 
to be a member of five major commit- 
tees, including two of the most impor- 
tant, the Senate Committee on Judici- 
ary and the Committee on Interstate 
and Foreign Commerce. He is also a 
member of the Senate Expenditures 
Committee, the Senate Select Commit- 
tee on Small Business, and the much 
publicized Interstate Crime Investigat- 
ing Committee. 


"Word Study," a valuable little peri- 
odical published by G. & C. Merriam 
Co., Springfield, Mass. and sent gratis 
to any English teacher requesting it, 
deals with word ancestry and the adop- 
tion of new 7 words in the dictionary. 
Recently "Word Study" published a re- 
quest from ^ Professor at University 
of Louisville, requesting information 
regarding the word "boondocks". The 
word, the professor explained was used 
in description of an offcampus area 
where students parked their cars. 

Maryland was able to supply the 
data on the origin of the word, at the 
same time indicating that its use at 
Louisville was correct. 

Col. Harvey L. Miller, U.S.M.C, 
Ret., director of publications at Mary- 
land, advised "Word Study" that the 
word "boondocks", "dates back to the 
early 1900's and the U. S. Marines at 
Olonpago, P. I. Hikes and field maneu- 
vers were 'toward the mountains.' Tag- 
alog for 'mountain' is 'bundok'. Thus 
today Marines use 'boondock' clothes 
and 'boondock' shoes for hikes and 
maneuvers. Anything out into the 
woods is 'in the boondocks.' Most Ma- 
rines know the origin of the word just 
as they know the traditions of many 
other words used in the Corps over the

Mummers Parade held on Hallowe'en. 

Competing with 38 bands from 
Maryland, Pennsylvania, and West Vir- 
ginia the University Band marched 
along a four mile route beginning and 
ending in the Hagerstown square. The 
parade, sponsored by the Alsatian 
Club, is an annual event which attracts 
many thousands to Hagerstown.

When the new education center was being opened at Frankfurt, Germany, for the July-August 
session (1950), the above poster was prepared for the occasion. The three teachers depicted were 
teaching government and politics at the center during that term.

CONSIDERING it too far to com- 
mute to College Park, 30 youth- 
ful dependents of United States mili- 
tary personnel in Germany are attend- 
ing the Daytime College of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland Munich Center. 

These students, one of whom is a 
dependent wife, compose the class of 
1954 which is the first class of the col- 
lege which opened in October. 

Similar to the evening program 
which is provided by the College of 
Special and Continuation Studies for 
the benefit of the military, the Day 
time School, too, operates an accelerat- 
ed program. 

Each semester consists of two eight 
week terms. Students attend classes 
three hours a day for four days a week. 
The 14 credits that each student car- 
ries is the result of a four credit course 
in economic geography and a three 
credit course in German which lasts the 
entire semester. The economic course 
is completed in an eight week period. 

Although the Munich Center is simi- 
lar to the College Park campus in aca- 
demic standards, coed students outnum- 
ber the men by 18 to 12. 

Skiing in the Bavarian Alps high- 
lights the extracurricular activities of 
the freshman students. Army foatball 


games are a source of athletic recre- 
ation, and the opera in Munich provide? 
cultural entertainment. 

The McGraw Kaserne, which is the 
military post in Munich, provides a 
bowling alley just as does College 
Park, but in addition, the Munich 
post sports a movie theatre. 

Classrooms are located on the fifth 
floor of the Munich Military Post 
Headquarters, and the out of town co- 
eds from Heidelberg and Vienna are 
billeted on the top floor of the building 
which houses the Military Police. 

Greenwich Village snack bar is fre- 
quented by the students just as is the 
Rec Hall on the College Park campus. 
Ice cream and coffee are the main fea- 
tures on the menu, and a nickleodeon 
rings out popular tunes. 

Mondays when College Park students 
are studying for hour exams, the stu- 
dents at the Munich Center will be regis- 
tering for the second term. 

In Tripoli 

Almost 100 officer and airmen stu- 
dents registered to study in the Uni- 
versity of Maryland College courses at 
Wheelus Field, Tripoli, Libya, with 
classroom work in American History 
under the guidance of Professor Jack- 
son T. Main. 

Professor Main was Assistant Pro- 
fessor of American History at Wash- 
ington-Jefferson College in Pennsyl- 
vania prior to going overseas some 

months ago for the University of 
Maryland in its college program for 
members of the U. S. armed forces in 
this theatre. 

The course at Wheelus Field deals 
with American History from the found- 
ing of the colonies in 1(!()7 to the Civil 
War in 1865. 

Professor Main arrived at Wheelus 
Field from Wiesbaden, Germany, where 
he taught a similar course in American 

Of the total class enrollment more 
than 50 per cent is comprised of offi- 

Wheelus Field, an installation of 
MATS' Atlantic Division, is command-

LAND, '47 Ed., was recently 
featured in the publication of Delta 
Gamma Sorority. At Maryland she 
was president of her sorority, earned 
graduation honors, and had her first 
experience with speech correction, 
which she has made her career. She 
received an M.A. from Columbia in 
1949 and served on the staff of the 
University of Michigan Speech Im- 
provement Camp. She also set up a 
speech and hearing program in West 
Hartford, Conn, for children of thir- 
teen schools who needed help in speech 
correction or lip-reading. This year 
she is in New York directing five 
schools and teaching 400 pupils each 
week along speech correction lines. Her 
activities have involved game therapy, 
dramatics, public speaking, and record- 
ing as well as the more formalized 
tongue and breathing exercises — this 
meant the ordering of games and ma- 
terials, writing of letters to interest 
PTAs and other citizen groups, and 
contacting state agencies, making 
speeches as well as planning and teach- 
ing lessons.

they will sponsor their first project, a 
party for handicapped children. 

The club holds its meetings every 
other Tuesday in the nursery school.

Dr. Samuel W. Goldstein 

»R. GOLDSTEIN has recntly been 
doubly honored by being elected 
as President of the Baltimore Branch of 
the American Pharmaceutical Associa- 
tion, and through his appointment as 
Assitant Secretary to Melville Stras- 
burger, Executive Secretary of the 
Maryland Pharmaceutical Association 
and the Baltimore Retail Druggists 

Dr. Goldstein graduated from the 
University of Maryland School of 
Pharmacy with the 
Class of 1926. In 
1927 he received his 
Pharmace u t i c a 1 
Chemist degree anc 
was appointed in- 
structor in Phar- 
macy and Chemis- 
try in the School of 
Pharmacy. In 192< 
h e received the 
Bachelor of Science 
degree in Pharmacy 
and became assis- Dr. Goldstein 

tant to the late Dean Andrew G. Du 
Mez in his editorial duties for the 
American Pharmaceutical Association. 
The Master of Science and Doctor of 
Philosophy degrees were awarded to 
him by the Graduate School of the U. 
of M. in 1933 and 1935 respectively. 
He received his Ph.D. degree for a 
chemical and pharmacological study of 
Phytolacca Americana. 

Dr. Goldstein resigned from the 
School of Pharmacy in 1936 to accept 
an appointment as Pharmaceutical 
Chemist in the State Department of 
Health. During the fourteen years in 
that capacity he has had numerous pub- 
lications on analytical procedures, drug 
extraction methods, and pharmaceu- 
tical compounding practices. He has 
reported a comprehensive study of com- 
pounding precision in the United States 
and Canada. His work on standards 
for prescription-counter products cul- 
minated in the development of a sys- 
tem of standard tolerances that can be 
applied to any extemporaneously com- 
pounded pharmaceutical product. 

His memberships, besides those al- 
ready mentioned, include: The Alumni 
Association of the School of Pharmacy, 
having served on the Executive Com- 
mittee; Maryland Section of the Amer- 
ican Chemical Society; he is second vice

on Prescription Tolerances and is a 
member of the Subcommittee on Mis- 
cellaneous Preparations of the Na- 
tional Formulary. He holds membersip 
in Rho Chi, Honorary Pharmaceutical 
Society, and Sigma Xi Fraternity. 

We extend our sincerest congratula- 
tions to him, and wish him every suc- 
cess and happiness in his chosen en- 

Thought for 1951

Tenth District of Quota International 
was attended by Dr. B. Olive Cole, Pro- 
fessor of Business Administration and 
Secretary of the School of Pharmacy, 
and Miss Amelia C. DeDominicis. The

Cole and Miss DeDominicis have mani- 
fested a profound interest in the Quota 
Club, an organization of professional 
and business women. 
Pharmacy Class of 1940 Holds Reunion 

The 1940 graduating class of Phar- 
macy held their tenth year reunion 
at the Park Plaza Hotel. Sixteen mem- 
bers and their wives attended the din- 
ner party and spent a most enjoyable 
evening. Dr. Francis S. Balassone, 
president of the class, was in charge 
of arrangements and acted as toast- 
master. Plans are being made to make 
this class reunion an annual affair. 
Those who were unable to attend can 
obtain further information from Dr. 
Balassone, who is an instructor at the 
School of Pharmacy. 

Colonel Mcintosh III Speaks 

At a joint meeting of the Baltimore 
Branch of the American Pharmaceu- 
tical Association, and the Baltimore 
Retail Druggists Association, Colonel 
David G. Mcintosh III, director of Civil 
Defense for the State of Maryland, fa- 
miliarized the pharmacists of Maryland 
with their place in Civil Defense. 

The meeting, held at the School of 
Pharmacy, Thursday evening, November 
16th, was well attended by pharma- 
cists active in all phases of Pharmacy. 
Samuel I. Raichlen, chairman of the 
state-wide committee of Pharmacy in 
Civil Defense, introduced the speaker. 

Colonel Mcintosh expressed his ap- 
preciation for the interest Pharmacy 
has shown so far, and hoped that the 
cooperation and good work of Phar- 
macy will continue.

officers were elected to the Baltimore 
Branch for the 1950-1951 term: Dr. 
Samuel W. Goldstein, President; Otto 
W. Muelhlhause, Vice President; Dr. 
Ben Allen, Secretary-Treasurer. 
Library Gift 

Mr. William M. Gould, '22, of John 
F. Hancock & Sons, Inc., 521 W. Lom- 
bard Street, Baltimore, presented the 
second edition of the French Pharma- 
copoeial Codex to the historical library 
of the School of Pharmacy. This par- 
ticular Codex was printed in 1839, and 
includes some supplementary informa- 
tion not available in the 1837 printing 
of the second edition. The School of 
Pharmacy has the first edition of the 
Codex, which was issued in 1818, and 
also the fifth edition issued in 1908 
and the sixth edition issued in 1937. 
The School would be very happy to 
receive copies of the third and fourth 
editions of the French Pharmacopoeia!

The new officers of the American 
Pharmaceutical Association elected to 
serve during the 1951-52 term include 


Dr. W. Arthur 1'urdum, Chief Pharma- 
cist, Johns Hopkins Hospital, as a

Kantner, Chairman, George I'. Hager 
and Francis S. Balassone, assisted by 
Charles S. Austin, Jr., M. L. Cooper 
and Otto W. Muehlhause, all of Balti- 
more. Graduates of the School of 
Pharmacy of the University of Mary- 
land have always held important offices 
and rendered valuable assistance to the 
American Pharmaceutical Association. 
To New York 
Dr. H. A. B. Dunning and Dr. Noel 
E. Foss attended a meeting of Un- 
American Fou n d a- 
dation for Pharma- 
ceutical Education 
in New York City 
on Friday, Novem- 
ber 17, 1950, Dr. 
Dunning: as a Direc- 
tor Member of the 
Foundation and Dr. 
Foss as a represen- 
tative of the Amer- 
ican Association of 
Colleges of Phar- 
macy, to fill the un- 
expired term of 
Dr. Dunning Dean H. Evert Ken- 

dig, deceased. Five graduate students in 
the School of Pharmacy of the Univer- 
sity of Maryland are recipients of fel- 
lowship grants from the Foundation, 
which also provides money for under- 
graduate scholarships in the schools of 
Pharmacy of this country, the require- 
ment in the case of undergraduate 
scholarships being that the Foundation 
will contribute an amount of $400 if the 
same is matched by an equal amount 
of $400 from friends of the School of 
Pharmacy. For the last three years 
the School of Pharmacy of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland has enjoyed the 
contribution from the Foundation, the 
matching contribution for 1949-50 hav- 
ing been made by Judson H. Sencin- 
diver, Honorary President of the 
Alumni Association of the School of 
Pharmacy, and that for the session of 
1950-51 by the Alumni Association of 
the School of Pharmacy. Many stu- 
dents in the undergraduate courses of 
the School of Pharmacy have benefitted 
by these scholarships.

Before a single drop of Scaliest Milk leaves our Chest-

his professional work to afford him re- 
laxation and pleasure. One is chickens 
and the other his beard. All three in- 
terests have played a major part in 
his life. At the age of twelve he found 
that a hair, a chicken, and medical ex- 
perimentation went together. He found 
he could cure the gapes, a disease of 
young chickens, by using a horse hair 
to remove tiny worms from their 

So, this man of three interests be- 
came known as the best in the medical 
field, the poultry field, and as a de- 
veloper of beards. 

A recent article in a New Jersey 
magazine says, in part: "Few can ap- 
proach Dr. Wolfe in years or length of 
service. He represents what the public 
regards as the typical family doc- 
tor, the conscientious, hard-working, 
harassed man who seldom gets enough 
sleep or money and gives more free 
service than any one else who works 
for a living." 

Dr. Wolfe of Bloomfield, New Jer- 
sey, is now 85 and going strong after 
as he says, "A CLOSE CALL WITH 
THE GLORY LAND," a year ago. His 
interest in the University of Maryland 
is outstanding. He proudly points to 
the fact that his son James C. gradu- 
ated from Maryland in Medicine in 
1921. Another son, Maynard D. gradu- 
ated from the Dental School in 1922.

Maryland's First 
All - American 


MARYLAND'S first All-American 
Football selectee is Guard Bob 
Ward, an atomic bundle of energy 
from Elizabeth, New Jersey who 
spent a great part of the 1950 
grid season raising particular 
Cain in the enemy's backfield. 
^°*^ Regardless of the opposition, the 

dynamic Terp seemed to get into just about every 
play, some of them so far afield spectators won- 
dered how in the world he got there. 

The Associated Press picked Bob as a first string 
All-American. So did Grantland Rice's Football 
Writer's poll in LOOK as well as Harry Grayson's 
NEA list. In addition Ward was No. 1 Guard on 
all of the All-Southern selections as well as on the 
No. 1 sectional team embracing the Southern and 
Southeastern Conferences in COLLIER'S. Pos- 
sibly UP and SPORTING NEWS observers were 
not as wide awake as other selectors. These two 
tabbed Bob for the second team, nationally. 

Wrote Frank Eck, anent the AP's selection, 

"Bob Ward was close to a 60-minute player at guard 
for Maryland despite his 185 pounds. On punts and 
kickoffs he usually was the first man downfield. Ward 
was one of the big factors in Maryland's 34-7 victory 
over Michigan State, the Spartan's only setback." 

Ward polled more votes than any other player. The 
same was true on West Virgina's all-opponents team. 
Ward was also chosen for the Washington D. C. 
TOUCHDOWN CLUB'S D. C. Area outstanding player 
award. ["See footnote page 47.] 

End Elmer Wingate, who had a terrific year, made 
both of the first All-Southern Conference teams (AP and 
Sports Writers). AP's All-America Honorable Mention.

ARYLAND'S football 
team, which at times 
looked like a million 
dollars in gold bullion, 
closed the season with 
a win over much-abused 
Virginia Tec h. The 
season opened with a 
loss to Georgia. After smashing wins 
over Navy and Michigan State sky- 
rocketed the Terps to dizzy football 
heights, they followed with a win over 
Georgetown. The first four games 
were covered in the last issue of 

A homecoming loss to North Caro- 
lina State constituted the nadir of '50 
football fortunes. The Tatumterps 
catapulted back to take Duke and Geo. 
' Washington, but were held to a tie 
by North Carolina. Maryland looked 
like a sho' nuf ball club again in tak- 
ing West Virginia. 

Maryland's 1950 showing gives 
Coach Jim Tatum a mark for his four 
years at College Park which is easily 
the best in the history of Terrapin foot- 
ball. During his regime the Terps have 
won 29 games and lost only 9 and tied 
3, a 76 f /r average. The Terps compiled 
975 points to 474 for the opposition and 
registered 23.3 points per game to 11.6 
for their rivals. During the 1950 sea- 
son Maryland piled up 3,237 yards to 
2,099 for their 10 opponents and picked 
up 274 points to 120 for their foes. 

Honor Guests 

The finale at Byrd Stadium saw some 


Jim Tatum's Terps Close Sea- 
son with High School Seniors 
as Honor Guests 

By Heinie Miller 

4,000 high school seniors and their 
bands as guests of Maryland and Vir- 
ginia Tech. They came from Maryland, 
District of Columbia and nearby Vir- 

After having been greeted by Dr. 
H. C. Byrd, University President and 
other members of the faculty, the high 
school seniors were conducted on a tour 
of the campus, after which they were 
Maryland's guests at a luncheon at- 
tended by officials of the State of 

The Chevy Chase - Bethesda Band, 
marching nicely and playing well be- 
hind a snappy group of Majorettes and 
showing also a well drilled group of 
ballerinas, won the band contest. They 
nosed out the good military band from 
Charlotte Hall as well as the snappy 
musical unit from Hagerstown. The 
winners paraded at half time and were 
on their toes to the extent of sounding 


lioli DeStefano, quarterback : Mighty Mo Modzelcwski, halfback; Johnny Scarbath, quarterback. 



Bob (Shoo-Shoo) Shemonski, Maryland's 
swifty from Archhald. Pa., pictured above, won 
the Southern Conference individual scoring 
parade with 97 points. Michaels, W&L, was 
second with 89. and Cone, of Clemson, third, 
with 86. 

Lewis, William and Mary, was fourth with 82 

Four years ago Maryland's Lucien (Lu) Gam- 
bino was plucked from the Old Liners' bench by- 
Coach Jim Tatum in his first campaign at Col- 
lege Park and made a star. Gambino took the 
point-producing title that season with 96 points 
— one less than Shemonski collected. 

off "Anchor's Aweigh" immediately 
the announcement was made of Army's 
defeat by that other good Maryland 
team from down Severn way. 

The large and enthusiastic contin- 
gent of high school seniors had a whale 
of a fine time of it. 

Comment from the press box, "This 
High School Open House is a swell idea; 
who's was it?", hardly merited an an- 
swer from Marylanders who have long 
since learned to expect "ideas" from a 
gentleman who has more of 'em than 
Nicaragua has bananas. 

Among the distinguished guests were 
Governor-elect Theodore R. McKeldin, 
U. S. Congressman Lansdale Sasscer, 
Maryland State Democratic leader Le- 
roy Pumphrey, State Senators Ray 
Fletcher, James Monroe and Gus Car- 
ruthers, and Superintendent of Schools 

Terps 63; Gobblers 7 

Although such things cannot be fore- 
seen when a coach recommends an op- 
ponent for the schedule months, and 
sometimes two years, in advance, not 
too much was expected of Virginia 
Tech's team which has played the 
part of the Thanksgiving Day gobbler 
all season. 

Obviously, the initial objective of 
Jim Tatum's Terps was to sec to it 
that Shoo-Shoo Shemonski finished the 

seascm as leading Southern Conference 
scorer. With the Terps idle on the pre- 
vious week end, Shoo-Shoo had been 
overhauled by Michaels, W&L, and 
Cone, Clemson, and needed 24 points to 
regain the honors. The game had hard- 
ly started when Shoo-Shoo began a 
tally parade that totaled 27, even hoot- 
ing - a conversion for one of them. 

Game's end saw Shoo-Shoo in the 
lead with !»7 points, with Michaels 
showing 89 and Cone 86. 

The Tatumterps turned the Tech lads 
every which way but loose in spite of 
the fact that Big - Jim sent in third 
and fourth stringers with tackles and 
guards lugging the oval. 

63 points was second highest for a 
Terp team, topped only by a tally, 
some years ago, of 80 against Wash- 
ington College in 1927. The season 
set a Terp team record of 274, 20 more 
than the '49 team tallied, including the 
'Gator Bowl win over Missouri. 

The story of the game is simply a 
tale of Terp touchdown tactics. In 
addition to the 5 scored by Shemonski, 
Idzik, DeStefano, Gierula, Karnash and 
Rowden crossed the line, with Dean 
scoring 2 and Shemonski 1 on conver- 
sions. 45 players got into the act for 
the Terps and 22 actually carried the 
ball. Every sort of play seemed to be 
employed for long runs, short runs, 
long passes and short passes. 

Virginia Tech scored late in the final 
quarter when Quarterback Fisher pass- 
ed to end John Herb. Bud. That prob- 
ably was brought about by the reali- 
zation that, since everybody was scor- 
ing for the Terps except Bill Cobey, 
Duke Wyre, Albrecht's Drug Store, 
Kukla, Fran and Oily, Virginia Tech 
might as well get into the act. 

It was the last game for Seniors 
Augsburger, Betz, Karnash, Wingate, 
Dean, Krouse, Gierula, Kramer, Po- 
biak, Gayzur, McHugh, Troha, Rowden, 
Idzik, Kuchta and Tagarona. Total 16. 

The game drew 11,773 of the faith- 
ful. The 205,835 TV sets in Washing- 
ton alone offered Navy's upset win over 
Army for, as Sam Goldwyn might have 
said, "Absolutely free of all gratis," a 
level of competition which, we repeat, 
recently brought about the arrest of a 
gatekeeper on the charge of loitering. 

The game terminated a season in 
which Maryland reached heights at 
which it outclassed teams like Michigan 
State and Navy, winners over Notre 
Dame, Michigan and Army, to erratic 
days on which Terp efforts were con- 
siderably below the class and ability 
which all hands and the cook knew the 
Terps had in the bundle but did not 
always unwrap. 

Terps 41; Mountaineers 

"It's been handed down from the hill- 
top's gleam that the breaks will go to 
the fighting team," is a poetic tribute 
written by Grantland Rice to outfits 
that are alert and aggressive. 

Coach Jim Tatum's Maryland team 
was like that against West Virginia, 
41 to 0, with press box reaction, "To- 
day you have the Terrapins that beat 
Michigan State." 

Tagarona, punting for Mai viand, 

dropped five long ones out of hounds 
or rolling dead inside of the Moun 
taineeis' II) yard line. That's not get- 
ting the breaks; that's good kicking. 

West Virginia was in Maryland tei 

ritory only three times all afternoon. 
One of those drives, a good one of foul 
excellent forward passes, terminated 
when the Terps intercepted. They in- 
tercepted five more like that by being 
on their toes, two of 'em for II ' 
Five WeeVee fumbles were recovered by 
alert Terrapins, two of them leading 
to the score board. 

The game was just a-bornin' when 
Shemonski intercepted a Mountaineer 
pass. Four plays later saw the first 
score, Mighty Mo Modzelewski carry- 
ing the mail. The Terps dominated the 
field with the quarter ending 7 to 0. 

Elmer Wingate, falling on a West 
Virginia fumble, resumed the mathe- 
matics in the second. A few plays 
later Fullerton took it over. Then Dick 
Modzelewski scooped up a fumble and 
two plays later his big brother cashed 
it in. Next DeStefano threw a long 
pass to Augsburger, followed by She- 
monski shoo-shooing around the right 
end for the score. Terps 27; Moun- 
taineers 0. 

In the third came one of those for 
the book. Maryland's Targarona punt- 
ed to the Mountaineers' 28. One of 
the home boys touched it and Tom 
Cosgrove fell on it for Maryland. Scar- 
bath passed to Shemonski in the end 
zone. West Virginia's Bonato leaped 
in to knock it down but instead later- 
aled it into Shemonski's arms for a 
touchdown, Maryland leading 34 to 
the 75 % mark. 

The Tatumterps had things all their 
own way in the fourth, capping the big- 
parade when Maryland's Colteryahn in- 
tercepted a desperation pass. A few 
plays later Shemonski was across. 
Terps 41; Mountaineers 0. Three of 
Bob Dean's four kicks were good. 
Chick Fry made 2 for 2. 

Coach Jim Tatum, in the final quar- 
ter, gave a lot of his promising third 
stringers a chance to get in there and 
they looked mighty good.

Interest in and loyalty toward Jim 
Tatum's unpredictable but thrill-

3,000 of the faithful purchased tickets 
through Bill Cobey's little window at 
College Park and traipsed down to 
Chapel Hill in every sort of conveyance 
known to modern man, less Taylor-tots, 
kiddie-kars and roller skates. 

The Terp fans did not relish the dis- 
couraging 7 to 7 tie that ensued and re- 
turned to College with their footballs 
slightly deflated. However, the Tar- 
heels were glad to settle for it. Coach 
Snavely said it was N.C.'s best job of 
the year.

An angle shot field goal attempt 
from the 22 yard line by Bob Dean 
went where it shouldn't had to oughter 
and with it went the last minute chance 
for a Maryland win. 

The whole affair took place in a 
down-pour that might well have been 
ordered by Sadie Thompson herself 
and did the Terps no good. 

Mighty Mo Modzelewski sat out most 
of the game due to injury and Johnny 
Scarbath did not show at all. That 
didn't help the College Park cause at 
all. Neither did the fact that Mary- 
land was penalized 65 yards. 

Bob DeStefano quarterbacked except 
in the last two plays engineered by 
Frank Armsworthy. 

In the second the Terps uncorked 
power that looked good, going 31 yards 
in nine plays. Shemonski took it over 
on a wide run. The half ended, 7 to 0. 

The game was fairly even in statis- 
tics, except in penalties. Maryland's 
first score came after they had been 
stopped on the 7 yard line, but got 
another chance when Carolina's Bunt- 
ing fumbled after being hit hard by 
Dean and Fincke and Scioscia recov- 
ered. DeStefano threw an 18 yard 
strike to Karnash and a shoe-lace 
catch to Augsburger. That set up 
Shemonski's score. 

The Terps' line held when Carolina 
threatened several times. Much of the 
play see-sawed in the middle of the 
field. DeStefano completed Maryland's 
six passes. Shemonski failed on all 
five of his. The latter, however, was 
Maryland's leading ground-gainer with 
45 yards. 

Carolina uncorked a burst of inspired 
action in the fourth. Everything on the 
ground and in the air went right for 
them as they marched 80 yards to 
make it 7 to 7, the final score. Ray 
Krouse almost ruined the Tarheel 
march when he threw Bunting for an 
8 yard loss, but then Carolina pulled 
out with a long pass. As the clock 
raced toward game's end Armsworthy 
was sent in to pitch. He tossed a 15- 
yard pass to Augsburger but the Tar- 
heels were solid on the 22 with sec- 
onds to go when Dean's field goal at- 
tempt failed. 

Bob Ward, a truly great competitor, 
was once again the star of the game. 
He was all over the place. Possibly 
he's the terrapin invented by Aesop 
who was on both ends of the race with 
the hare. 

Dick Modzelewski was a fire horse 
in the line and Jake Rowden made more 
than his share of tackles.

With Scarbath out of the game due 
to a shoulder separation another Soph- 
rmore Bob DeStefano, very efficiently 
took over the wheel to pilot Big Jim 
Tatum's Terp machine to a 23-7 win 
over George Washington. Like Scar- 
hath, DeStefano apparently studied the 
woodpecker and observed that it's ef- 


fective to use your head when you 
work. The Colonials, one of the na- 
tion's top passing teams, tutored by 
cagey "Bo" Rowland, were at all times 
dangerous and made a great showing. 
They went to work on what the ex- 
perts have been pointing out as the 
Terps' Achilles heel — pass defense. 
Maryland, in the meantime, played 
very conservative ground ball until, 
when the situation called for it, they 
shifted terptatumtactics to effective 
passing of their own at a time when 
gambling resulted in pay off digits on 
the scoreboard. Maryland had to play 
good ball to win this one. Rowden, 
Gierula, Petruzzo, Wingate, Dick Mod- 
zelewski and Krouse were hot on de- 
fense, while DeStefano, Shemonski, 
Augsburger, Wingate, Ed. Modzelewski 
and Karnash did great jobs with Ladygo 
snaring two G.W. fumbles. 

Twice in the first G.W. halted Terp 
thrusts. G.W.'s Kline intercepted one 
pass that had a "6" on it and then, 
after a brilliant zig-zag passing play 
that ended in Augsburger's arms, that 
leceiver was hit so hard the ball spurt- 
ed out of his hands just as he seemed 
good for the pay window. Up to then 
it appeared that G.W. was going to toss 
successful passes more often than Mil- 
ton Berle says "Ladies and gentlemen" 
on Tuesday nights. Shortly thereafter 
DeStefano threw a strike to Karnash 
for a score. Dean converted. Terps 7; 
Colonials 0. 

In the second the Hatchetmen unlim- 
bered a passing attack that took them 
right down the field, topped by a nice 
break when it was ruled that Shemon- 
ski had interfered with a pass, Jones to 
Davis. With that one allowed after 
two heavy penalties had done the Terps 
no good, Samuelson scored for G.W. 
The kick was good and the score stood 

The third featured a series of fine 
passes from DeStefano and Shemonski. 
One from the former to the latter, while 
Shoo-Shoo was running backwards, 
was a humdinger and sent Maryland 
ahead, 14; G.W., 7, as Dean booted. 

The fourth was a welter of confusion, 
intra-official discussions, hefty penal- 
ties against the Terps and a desperate 
G.W. drive that ended when Ward hit 
Barreira in typical Ward fashion. The 
ball popped turfward and Maryland's 
Kensler fell on it. Andy Davis, G.W. 
star, led his mates right back on a drive 
that ended when Shemonski intercepted 
a Davis pass. Later in the fourth, G.W. 
suffered a touchback as G.W.'s Shul- 
lenbarger, attempting to pass out of the 
end zone, suffered the shock of having 
Sully Krouse's little brother Raymond 
fall on him. The final G.W. drive ter- 
minated when, after a determined and 
desperate assault, the Terps' Petruzzo 
repeated his Duke performance, grab- 
bed a Davis pass and scored. Dean 
converted. Terps 23; G.W. 7.

Rain came down in torrents in the 
4th frame. That and the ensuing mud 
provided one of those "anything can 

happen" situations. 

Maryland's Coach, Jim Tatum, paid 
high tribute to Coach Ho Rowland's 
squad. "They played a great game 
in the air as well as over the ground. 
Defensively their line was good," said 
Rig Jim, adding, "with more reserves 
they might have given us even more 

The game drew is. 272. The out and 
out football fans not following any par- 
ticular team but liking the game for 
the game's sake, and who supply the 
"big" gates had a choice between the 
Terps-Colonial game and a "TV for 
free" menu which offered Army-1'enn; 
Columbia-Cornell; Navy-Notre Dame, 
and Princeton-Colgate. 

Terps 2fi; Hlue Devils 1 1 

The finish to that one, if shown as a 
movie story, would have been tabbed 
as "phoney". It was Maryland's first 
win over Duke after seven tries that 
started 18 years ago. All of which 
meant sweet nectar and attar of roses 
for Big: Jim Tatum and his smashing 
ball club. 

The tenacious Tatumterps, against a 
team sporting the nation's No. 2 passer 
in Bill Cox (and was he hot?), piled 
up 280 yards over the greensward 
while essaying only 9 passes them- 
selves to the Wallace Wademen's 12(i 
yards. That, coupled with alert de- 
fense and a finale that would have done 
credit to Cecil B. DeMille, had the 
Marylanders looking like the ball club 
the gridiron cognoscente knew was 
there all the time. 

Shedding tacklers like a duck sheds 
a shower, Mighty Mo Modzelewski 
banged his way through Duke tacklers 
for tremendous gains. Shoo Shoo She- 
nionski had the speed and skill to 
make long runs through Duke tacklers 
and going over for two touchdowns. 
Petruzzo too was hot as a Roman 
candle to make it two more, one of 
them in that breath-taking finale. 
Krouse, Ward, Wingate and Rowden 
never played a better game, Scarbath 
was right at the peak and the whole 
team followed suit to prove that win 
over Michigan State (conquerors of 
Notre Dame) was not just so much 
sugar for the bird. This day Tatum's 
Terps were right from bow to stern 
and from port to starboard. 

No score in the first frame as the 
Terps banged ahead against a Duke 
team that held when the chips were on 
the line, while Maryland did the same 
when Duke hammered at the pay win- 
dow. They ruined what looked like an 
early Maryland score when a pass was 
intercepted. A long attempt at a field 
goal also failed for Maryland. 

In the second Krouse and Gierula 
caused Duke's Cox to fumble on the 
Duke 35. A bevy of fast and accurate 
passes, Scarbath to Shemonski went 
nowhere when Augsburger dropped 
one with "TD" labeled on it. However, 
on the next one, Shemonski shoo- 
shooed across. Dean's kick was n.g. 
Then Duke got hot with a series of 
brilliant passes, one of 'em for 42. 
That paitl off. Their boot was good and

Duke was ahead, 7 to 6. That ignited 
the fuse that sent the Tatumkins on a 
smashing power drive with Shemonski, 
Scarbath and Petruzzo moving like 
squirrels in a revolving cage, while 
Mighty Mo smashed through Duke 
tacklers. That business went on relent- 
lessly for 80 yards and was climaxed 
when Petruzzo grabbed one to tote it 
across that white line. Dean's boot 
was back to normal. Terps 13; Duke 7. 

The Duke passing machine got off a 
beauty with only Shemonski between 
the ball and another score. Shemonski 
missed the tackle but slowed the play 
down just enough to enable Rowden 
to get across the field and stop that 
business. It was a life saver, albeit 
Duke was right up there, uncomfort- 
ably close. The Terp defense withstood 
the assault on the goal line and, on the 
ensuing punt Shemonski grabbed the 
oval and raced it down to where, on 
the next play, he went over on a hand 
off from Scarbath. The kick was bad. 
Maryland 19; Duke 7. 

In the 4th five good passes for 45 
yards put the Wademen right back into 
the ball game as Mountie went over, 
followed by a good kick. Maryland 19; 
Duke 14. It was getting warmer down 
in Dixie, with Maryland only 5 points 
ahead of a team that was really rolling 
with the talent fully capable of passing 
your ears off. They did just that too 
but failed in the showdown when the 
Terp line held. With a combination of 
power plays and passes Scarbath quar- 
terbacked the Terps downfield to what 
looked like success, but here again the 
Dukes held and set the stage for that 
little number imported from Sunset 
Boulevard. Time was running out as 
the Terps banged at the Duke line. 
They were right down there when, on 
the 4th down, Scarbath, one eye on the 
ball and the other on the clock, tried to 
run it out with the expected result of 
being thrown for a 10 yard loss. That 
set the stage for just one more Duke 
play and, naturally, it HAD to be a 
desperation pass. The final gun pop- 
ped as Powers faded back and rifled 
one intended for classy Billy Cox. How- 
ever out of a swirling welter of charg- 
ing youth darted a red sweater num- 
bered "26", as Petruzzo snatched it out 
of the ozone and romped for the tally. 
On the kick Duke drew its only penalty 
of the day and Dean got another 
chance to boot. He made it good. 
Maryland 26; Duke 14. 

Said coach Wallace Wade, who had 
tried for his 200th victory, "Maryland 
was by far the best team Duke faced 
all year. That includes Tennessee." 

Cox, Duke's great tosser, slammed 
26 passes. 17 of them hit their mark 
for a total of 175 yards. He pitched to 
one touchdown and set up the other 
and gave Maryland an anxious mo- 

The Terps drove 35 and 80 yards for 
their first two touchdowns. 

It was a bad day for Duke. Their 
cross country and soccer teams were 
both defeated by Maryland earlier in 
the day.

There was no shortage of seats as 
only 20,000 saw the game. Those who 
have been converted to "Sports for 
Free on Your TV" had Army, Navy 
and others to keep them at home. On 
this same afternoon Georgetown, at 
Griffith Stadium, in the heart of a big 
city, counted 5,000 of the faithful in 
attendance, while at Michigan, from 
erudite Fritz Crisler came, "Football 
must find a way to live with TV before 
we get cut to pieces by it. Michigan 
could always count on a 10,000 ticket 
sale on the day of a game. Against 
Dartmouth only 932 tickets were sold 
at the gate." 

It was only a few years ago that 
some sports writers unmercifully casti- 
gated those who waved the red flag re 
TV. The storm signals were Oh, SO 
right, however. It has been a long 
time since P. T. Barnum voiced, "You 
can't compete with free entertain- 
ment." Much space has been devoted 
to NCAA's Sanity Clause and that may 
not mean so much unless football — and 
other sports too — snap out of it to do 
something about TV's Santy Claus who 
brings Christmas all the year around 
with assorted sports gifts for the cost 
of twisting a button. 

The win lifted Maryland from 28th 
to 15th position in the AP's weekly 
football ratings. 

Wolfpack 16; Terps 13 

That was the score as 1950 Home- 
coming saw more than the alumni 
gathering at College Park. All the 
football gremlins and grivets had evi- 
dently decided to interject a convoca- 
tion of their own into the Terrapin 

The Tatumterps put on a show that 
ranged all the way from the scintil- 
lant play that, against Navy and Mich- 
igan State, had placed Maryland in 8th 
place nationally, to long lapses of in- 
nocuous desuetude fringed with slight 
touches of occasional rigor mortis that 
quinined Homecoming. The setback 
plummetted the Terps from No. 8 to 
28 in the A. P. ratings, the greatest drop 
taken by any team over a week-end of 

This one further confounded the ex- 
perts and prognosticators, for North 
Carolina State had lost to Wake For- 
est, North Carolina and Duke (al- 
though outplaying the latter two) and 
had barely nosed out little Catawba, 
7 to 6, which, on comparative scores 
places Catawba above Maryland, Navy. 
Michigan State, Georgetown and any 
other teams defeated by the last named 
four. The surprising setback imposed 
upon Maryland took place on the same 
day that saw Notre Dame, already 
beaten by Purdue, further humbled by 
a loss to Indiana. That put the Irish 
in third place for their own state cham- 
pionship. To further mess up the pic- 
ture Purdue already defeated by Mi- 
ami, took a trimming from Iowa, while 
Navy humbled Southern California. 

Scarbath's usually accurate passes 
were ofttimes wide and wild. Good look- 
ing passes were nullified l>y being 
caught just outside of the end zone. 
Boh Dean's toe, usually the epitome of 
accuracy, muffed one conversion. That 
and a weird safety combined to provide 
the three point margin of victory for 
a surprisingly alert State team, which 
played a good defensive pa me while 
their offense clicking when clickage 

The Terps missed out on scoring 
chances that appeared to he there on a 
silver platter garnished with parsley. 

A Maryland fumble gave State a 
quick lead. Scarbath threw a lateral 
to Shemonski. It bounced out of the 
■atter's hand and rolled out of the end 
zone for a safety. State 2; Terps 0. 

As the Terps stumbled far below the 
form of which they are fully capable 
State's Costa fell on a fumble by She- 
monski of a pass from Scarbath on 
Maryland's 21. Two smashes at the 
line and a surprise reverse hit the pay 
window and the kick was good. State 
9, Terps 0. 

Shemonski ran a State punt 47 yards 
to State's 9 yard line. Four cracks at 
the State line gained nothing. 

To many it seemed that Maryland 
was giving a grade A demonstration 
of how to give away a ball game. 

In the second quarter Maryland filled 
the air with passes and drove 81 yards, 
only to see a pass from Scarbath to 
Modzelewski in the end zone knocked 
down by State. 

Again the Terps looked like a million 
bucks when they passed and ran the 
oval to Carolina's 4-yard line. How- 
ever, an attempted pass into the end 
zone was intercepted. 

The Terps were repulsed three times 
within the five yard line during the 
first half. 

In the third quarter the famed Terp 
line looked like anything but the power 
house it really is as State moved up 
the field and scored again as Mooney 
crossed the line. Maryland finally 
caught fire near the end of the third 
but the State line held at crucial mo- 

The fourth quarter saw Maryland 
dominate the play while State held on 
grimly by the shoe laces. 

Petruzzo ran 30 yards. Kuchta ram- 
bled for 43. Scarbath finally reached 
previous form and hit Shemonski for 
22 yards and a touchdown. Dean's 
kick was bad. State 16; Maryland 6. 

Another fast and brilliant drive con- 
cluded when Scarbath plunked a long 
pass to Augsburger for a score. Dean's 
toe was good. State 16; Maryland 13. 

An onside kick failed while the clock 
raced. The Terps, looking like their 
old selves, tried hard. State was forced 
to boot with a little over a minute to 
play. A desperate long pass from Scar- 
bath bounced off Colteryahn and into 
a pair of Carolina arms and the Terps 
last chance went a-glimmerin' in the 
gloamin', ending what just wasn't 
Maryland's day. 

The day at least provided the answer 
to the oft repeated assertion that 
Navy, in Baltimore, could outdraw 
Maryland at College Park. Against a

Doyle Royal's Booters Sign Off 
With 8 Wins to 2 Losses 

By Julius Israel 

ARYLAND'S soccer 
team, coached by Doyle 
Royal turned in one 
of the most successful 
seasons i n Maryland 
soccer history, the Roy- 
alists chalking up eight 
wins as against only 
two losses. 
The Terrapins repeated as Southern 
Conference champs by winning four 
straight tilts from Southern rivals. 
This feat was also accomplished last 
year, thus making it 8 straight over a 
2 year period. 

Practice began in early October with 

1 1 lettermen missing from last sea- 
son's potent outfit and little was ex- 
pected this year. However, the 1950 
version made up for a lack of overall 
experience with a lot of spirit and zing. 

Leading was Captain Jim Belt, 2 
time Ail-American selection. Playing 
in only eight of the Terps' 10 games, 
Belt blasted ten goals, a brilliant ac- 
complishment. Belt's uncanny knack 
of "outguessing the ball" was in evi- 
dence throughout the season. 

Bolstering the Terp offense was vet- 
eran Jim Savage, 155 lb. Junior from 
Callao, Peru. Savage and Belt were 
the two offensive mainstays on attack. 
When Belt let off, Savage began. Sav- 
age, who has received points for the 
All-American selections to be made in 
January played his best game against 
Connecticut, when he booted three 
goals to crush the visitors 4-2. 

Prominent on defense were veteran 
fullback Don Soderberg and topnotch 
goalie Eric Baer. Soderberg's tremen- 
dous boots stalled many an enemy 
thrust. Baer's diving stops of goal 
hound halls were classics. These two 
titians on defense limited Terp foes to 

12 goals all season. 

On October 13 the Royalists opened 
against Washington and Lee, Maryland 

winning, 6-0. Jim Belt's three goals 
led the initial triumph. 

The second win was registered over 
Virginia, 5-1. Belt's two tallies again 
led the attack. 

Maryland tasted defeat for the first 
time, when they dropped a tight 2-1 
decision to the powerful West Chester 
State Teachers, who upset the national 
champs, Penn State, 1-0. It took an 
overtime period for the Teachers, who 
finished their season undefeated, to 
down the Terps. 

They hit their stride again by beat- 
ing Duke's Blue Devils, 4-1. The Terps 
broke the game wide open by scoring 
three times in torrid second period. 

The Terps won their fourth by shut- 
ting out previously undefeated Loyola, 
3-0. The Greyhounds were never in it, 
the College Parkers completely domi- 

Maryland duplicated the Loyola 
score by downing North Carolina State 
3-0. The Wolfpack played a totally 
defensive game, attempting to halt the 
Terps' offensive power. Jim Belt 
scored twice. * 

Next came the "Big One" with Conn- 
ecticut. The New Englanders grabbed 
a 1 goal lead in the initial quarter, only 
to have the Terps come roaring back 
with three goals in the second and 
Maryland finished ahead 4 to 2. 

Next was Johns Hopkins U. The 
Bluejays put up an unexpectedly tough 
battle before bowing 2-1. It was the 
fifth straight triumph for the Liners. 
Captain Jim Belt did not play in this 
one because of a bruised knee. 

Then came the battle with the na- 
tional champions from Penn State. The 
Terps went down to defeat 5-1 before 
the Nittany Lions, by far the best club 
to face Maryland this season. The 
Terps played without Jim Belt, who 
had suffered a knee injury, while Eric 
Baer, brilliant goalie, was hurt in the 
first quarter and removed from play. 
The loss of these two was damaging to 
Maryland hopes. 

The season came to an end when the 
Terps crushed their Southern Confer- 
ence rivals, North Carolina, 4-0. Mary- 
land was boss throughout the contest

scoring once in each period. It was a 
great finish to a great season. 

An interesting sidelight to the sea- 
son was the number of South American 
lads playing for Maryland. No less 
than four Latin- Americans graced the 
roster, while two of them played on the 
first eleven. Jimmy Savage from Peru 
and Hector Ormachea from Bolivia, 
were the two starters from South 
America, Aurelio Concha and Ernesto 
Balladares were able reserves. In their 
countries soccer is THE football sport. 

Playing their last season for Mary- 
land were seniors Claude Robinson, Jim 
Belt, Tom Bourne, Tom Cox, Charles 
Fink, Orville Jackson, and Bob Logan. 
There will be difficulty replacing them. 

Special recognition should be given 
to seniors Robinson, Bourne, Cox and 
Fink. Claude Robinson played the dif- 
ficult position at center half perfectly 
throughout the campaign, while Tom 
Bourne earned his right as a starter 
towards the end of the season. Tom 
Cox, 26 yr. old senior from Owings 
Mills, Md., along with Claude Robin- 
son, proved to be two of the best de- 
fensive halfbacks in college ranks. 
Charley Fink, the third graduating 
halfback, who was hurt early in the 
season, was replaced by Yale Clugman. 
who has earned a place on the 1st 
string by his constant improvement. 

The distinguishing; factor between 
this Maryland team and others in the 
past was in the spirit displayed by the 
1950 Terps. Perhaps individual stars 
were missing in comparison with past 
clubs, but the present eleven made up 
for it with teamwork and hustle. With 
All-American Jim Belt as the guiding 
hand and spark plug the Marylanders 
were true competitors all the way. 

The booters were ably coached again 
by Doyle Royal, who had as his assis- 
tant Mike Kinder who fullbacked for 
the Terps last year. Under Royal's 
able direction the booters piled up 33 
goals to 12 for the opposition.

ARYLAND'S wrestling-

made to speed up 
activity on the mat

teeth in the "no stalling" ruling have 
been added, whereby the referee may

Coach Bud Millikan Launches 
Terps on Strenuous Schedule 

By George L. Carroll 

ARYLAND'S basket- 
ball team is assuming 
the new look with 
H.A. "Bud" Millikan. 
former All - American 
at Oklahoma A & M, 
as Head Coach. 

The 30 year old 
mentor will be heading a university 
aggregation for his first time. Previ- 
ously he served as assistant to Hank 
Iba ("Mr. Basketball") at Oklahoma 
Aggies and as head coach at Maryville, 
Mo. and Clinton, Iowa High School in 
that order. "I don't know too much 
about the teams in the area and in the 
Conference," said 
Millikan, "and with 
the material I have 
on hand I will be in 
a process of build- 
ing. We lost two 
fine boys that were 
counted on heavily," 
the coach went on 
to say, "in the per- 
sons of Charlie 
Mack, center, and 
Bob Murray, for- 
ward, for the com- 
ing season, as they 
Army service. How- 

Coach Millikan 
were called to 

ever, I can bank on some of the sopho- 
more talent to shape up." 

Instilling the Iba system of court 
ball, Millikan intends to use the single 
pivot and a man to man defense. It 
will be real midwest basketball with 
emphasis on defense. 

Basketeers like Lee Brawley, Dick 
Koffenberger, Ronald Siegrist and Jim 
Johnson are holdovers from last sea- 
son. Brawley, who led the Terps in 
scoring with 347 points is a 6'2" junior 
from Duncan, Arizona. Koffenberger, 
who tallied 165 points last season, is 
a six-footer who hails from Wilming- 
ton, Del. Siegrist and Johnson didn't 
see too much action in the 49-50 sea- 
son. The latter is one of the Terps' 
leading track stars. Coach Millikan is 
looking forward to his fitting into the 
first string picture. This 6'2" junior 
lives in Washington and is the son of 
Ching Johnson, former ice hockey 

Such sophomore aspirants as Tom 
Conelly, 6'2" guard from Washington, 
Pa.; Don Moran, 6'3", forward from 
Westernport, Md.; John Strachan. 
5'11", guard, from Kearney, N. J.; 
Morris Levin, 6'4", center, from As- 
bury Park, N. J., and Sam Towne, 6'4", 
forward, from Chevy Chase, Md. are 
leading contenders for starting berths. 

The Terps will play a 26 game 
schedule, the first game being listed 
as an exhibition opposite the Quan- 
tico Marine Corps Schools. The opener 
at the Ritchie Coliseum will be against 
the University of Virginia on Decem- 
ber 1. 

In all, the Old Line courtmen will 
play 19 Southern Conference games 
with outside competition listed as Vir- 


tfinia, Pennsylvania, Rutgers, Navy, 
and Georgetown. West Virginia and 
Rutgers, the former now a Conference 
member, are new on the schedule. 

The freshman schedule, not available 
at this printing, will consist of approx- 
imately 15 games. The team will play 
preliminary to the varsity. Burris 
Husman, former Illinois hasketccr will 
again coach the yearlings. 

The overall record of the L949-50 
varsity was 7 wins against IK losses. 
In the Southern Conference the record 
was 5 wins against 13 losses.

Marines 72; Terps 55 

Sparked by Washington's profes- 
sional, Big Jack Nichols, Ail-American, 
who scored 37 points for a new deal at 
Quantico. The Marines took the Terps, 
72 to 55. 

Quantico led, 40-31, at halftime with 
Nichols collecting 21 points. Don 
Moran and Jim Johnson paced Maryland 
with 17 and 14 points, respectively. 

Games with Service teams are rated 
as exhibitons. 

Terps 59; Cavaliers 57 

Maryland made an auspicious colle- 
giate debut defeating Virginia, 59-57. 

Koffenberger and Brawley led with 
21 and 17 points, respectively. 

Trailing 40-52 into the final, the 
Terps put together a 12-point string, 
interrupted only by a Virginia foul 
toss, to go ahead, 52-43, to stay. 

Penn 75, Terps 64 

Pennsylvania staved off a fourth- 
period rally by Maryland with a 75-to- 

64 victory in Philadelphia. 

Penn held a 57-to-41 margin with 
eight minutes of the second half gone. 
Maryland pulled within three points at 

65 to 62. With five minutes to go, Penn 
forged ahead to stay. 

The Terps came within three points 
of catching Penn at 65-all in the sec- 

Jim Johnson and Lee Brawley were 
high men in Maryland's scoring, al- 
though Brawley collected 10 of his 14 
points at the foul stripe.

tam champ, who was looked upon as a 
good bet not only for a national col- 
legiate title but also as a keen possi- 
bility for a 52 Olympic title, has been 
called back to the army. Like the other 
four aforementioned Pete hopes to re- 
turn to Maryland, "if and when." 

After asserting that O'Brien repre- 
sented a distinct and unexpected loss 
to this year's team, a varsity boxing 
regular being one-eighth of the total 
line-up and that much was hoped for 
from the two Fuller boys this year, 
Coach Miller, a retired leatherneck, la- 
conically quoted the Marines' motto, 
"Do the best job you can with the tools 
you have." 

The squad shows some excellent 
freshman talent which Coaches Miller 
and Cronin hope will still be around for 
next year's varsity. 

Among the candidates for the fresh- 
man team are Oscar Amundsen,

MARYLAND'S reputation as a 
rifle shooting school hit the top 
headlines when Arthur Cook, in 1928, 

won a world's Olympic as well as a 

National shooting title. 

The "Little Cookie's" will was quite 
iii keeping with Maryland tradition, al- 
though the Terrapins' earlier national 
rifle championships, four of them 
must he credited to the distaff side of 
the shooting records. 

In the September-October l!>. r )0 issue 
of MARYLAND, we published an edi- 
torial which stated that the first Na- 
tional Rifle title for Maryland had been 
won hy Miss Irene Knox in 1932. 

We stand corrected and we hope the 
correction is in time to prevent proof 
of the axiom, "Hell 
hath no fury like a 
w o m a n scorned," 
particularly, if she 
is a National Rifle 
shooting woman. 

The first National 
Rifle Championship 
for Women was won 
in 1928 by Sopho- 
more Margaret 
Mitchell w i t h a 
score of 593 (pos- 
sible 600). 
In 1929, Miss Mitchell (by that time 
Mrs. Caruthers) repeated the National 
Title victory. 

In 1930, National Shooting Honors 
for Women were again won for Mary- 
land by Senior Alice Orton, with 594 of 
a possible 600. 

In 1932, Irene Knox did it again with 
599 of a 600 possible. That Was the 
year during which Miss Knox made a 
perfect score of 600. 

Maryland girls won the national 
team championship in 1926, 1931 and 
1932 scoring, in the latter year the 
high score of 2,969 out of a possible 
3,000, to win over the University of 
Missouri's 2,957 and the University of 
Washington's same score. 

To get back to Miss Mitchell, Mary- 
land's first national shooting champ in 
1928, Miss Mitchell married Robert S 
Caruthers, '26. She left Maryland in 
her junior year and finished at Bar- 
nard College in '31. The Caruthers' 
oldest son, Robert, is now a sophomore 
at Maryland, majoring in chemistry. 
Mr. Caruthers has been with the Bell 
Telephone Laboratories in New York 
for 21 years. The Caruthers have other 
children, Blake 16, Lynne 12, and Caro- 
line 6, and live in Mountain Lakes, New

The invasion of Korea is red hot 
current history. A relatively small 
proportion of American citizenry car- 
ries the heavy load of that job, but 
already Maryland's alumni rolls are 
experiencing the shock of casualties. 

Killed in action, their names to go 
on the bronze tablet on the new Chapel 
being erected in honor of Maryland's 
war heroes, along with their forerunners 
of World Wars I and II are Captain Le- 
Roy Moore Cooke, a member of the 
Law Cass of '51 and James Baido, Den- 
tal School '46. 

While we are on the subject of Korea 
it might not be amiss, for the lesson 
il teaches, of noting a letter recently 
received by the writer from Master 
Sergeant John Lester Dean, U.S.M.C., 
currently stationed at Portsmouth, 
N. H. 

Johnny D»an was this writer's right 
hand in the combat conditioning courses 
that schooled young Marines in the art 
of "on balance counterpunch boxing" 
as a means of self defense, with or 
without weapons. It paid good divi- 
dends on Guadalcanal and Dean him- 
self used it most convincingly on Iwo 
Jima. Dean, while serving on the 
U. S. S. Pennsylvania won the all-Navy 
middleweight boxing championship. 
For a while he boxed professionally 
with considerable success but returned 
to the Marine Corps later. He has a 
younger brother who was a very prom- 
ising boxing prospect but who also 
joined the Marines prior to Korea. 

The University of Maryland has 
given more of its sons to the Marine 
Corps than any other college in Amer- 
ica. Maryland men, from President 
Byrd on down, are interested in what 
makes the Marines click toward their 
magnificent morale, elan and esprit de 

They will be interested in the letter 
from Staff Sergeant Dean. 

"My kid brother advises me from 
Korea," writes Dean, "that he encoun- 
tered a tough break in Korea. I wish 
from the bottom of my heart that I 
could have changed places with him. 
He will not do any more boxing and he 
will not fulfill his ambition to make the 
Corps his career. I have quite a classic- 
piece of writing, penned at his dictation 
by one of his buddies, in which he says. 
'I at last AM a Marine. You always 
told me, Sarge, that I'd never be one 
until I had a battle star and a purple 
heart. Now I have both and I am 
lucky because some of my less lucky 
comrades are dead. I am in hospital 
in Japan. But do not worry. It is 
nothing about which to get EXCITED. 
I just went blind.' 

"I am naturally proud of him," con- 
cludes Master Sergeant Dean, "because 
he is not feeling sorry for himself. If 
he were, I would write him and jrivc 
him hell." 


Marines and ex-Marines will under- 
stand Dean's letter. God grant that 
others may not need the fortitude nec- 
essary for similar understanding. 

With the national agenda apparently 
calling for something resembling Eng- 
land's policy of austerity while John 0- 
Citizen serves in the show piece "Saw- 
ing a Tax Payer in Half," we felt 
MARYLAND readers might get a hit 
of a lift out of reading the letter from 
the Dean youngster who thinks he's 


It would seem that comment on the 
announced plan to neither pamper pro- 
fessional athletes in the service nor 
disqualify them hecause of minor phys- 
ical disabilities, has missed making- the 
point. Neither sports organizations nor 
the athletes concerned should be 
blamed for the situation existent dur- 
ing World War II. The service man 
g-oes where he is sent and does the 
duty to which he is assigned. It would 
seem that if any blame is to be fixed, 
it should rest on the officials who pre- 
scribed the policy now under criticism. 

Like many another service fellow, I 
saw the best league in baseball play in 
Honolulu, the teams made up of top 
major league stars. Possibly some of 
them enjoyed this relatively cushy bil- 
let. No doubt others felt none too 
heroic in "entertaining" kids who had 
been shot up at Iwo Jima and else- 
where. But the reaction from old-time 
regulars reflected the "professional at- 
titude" i.e., "They're doing what they 
were ordered to do." 

There has been criticism of good ath- 
letes being ruled out because of punc- 
tured ear drums and bad feet, handi- 
caps which did not, however, prevent 
them from later taking part in such 
arduous sports as pro football and box- 

Some of these cases are worth men- 
tioning at this time. 

Frankie Sinkwich, Georgia football 
star, sat on the ground and cried at 
Marine Corps boot camp because he 
was being washed out due to bad feet. 
They just wouldn't take him over the 
route prescribed for marine recruits. 
He begged to stay with them. He 
was shifted to a recruiting billet, but 
he asked for discharge and went to sea 
in the Merchant Marine. That was no 
bargain either. The point is that Sink- 
wich, with proper taping and band- 
aging, could tear up a football field 
with time out for rests. Hiking 15 
miles under heavy marching orders was 
something else again. Similarly, a 
punctured ear drum stood up in a 10 
round boxing contest but was almost a 
sure bet for ear infection sleeping in 
the rain on the ground of some distant 
island jungle. 

The current semi-hysteria recalls 
the Rocky Graziano case. This pro 
boxer took French leave after three 
days in the service without even having 
been issued a uniform. He was only 
one of 50,000 such cases. The finger

The University's Contribution to the State of Maryland 

By David L. Brigham 


a Uni v e r s i t y of 
Maryland alumnus, 
was sworn in as 
Governor of the 
Free State of Mary- 
land before thou- 
ands of spectators 
at the State Capitol 
at Annapolis. Pray- 
ers, music, parades, 
speech making and 
receptions marked the day in honor of 
the new Governor. Perhaps never be- 
fore in the history of the State have so 
many alumni of the University of 
Maryland been assembled for a single 
occasion. This event on the sunny 
streets of a small city on a January day 
in 1951 caused some logical reflection 
concerning the contribution the Univer- 
sity of Maryand has made to the lead- 
ership and the general welfare of the 
people of her State. No institution or 
organization, large or small, can take 
more pride in the development of the 
State of Maryland than can its own

With the Governor, who received his 
Law degree from the University in 
1925, were former Governor Herbert R.

In the November election, the voters 
of the State indirectly expressed great 
confidence in the University and the 
training it provides when they named 
at least thirty graduates to the new 
State Legislature. The names of these 
delegates and Senators appeared in the 
last issue of MARYLAND. 

In Baltimore the City Solicitor is 
Thomas M. Biddison '31 and the Assis- 
tant City Solicitor is Edwin Harlan of 
the Class of 1934. These are only a 
few of the many prominent University 
of Maryland names which have contri- 
buted so liberally to the development 
of a great State. The listing of those 
holding major County positions would 
make an alumni directory in itself. The 
University of Maryland is dedicated to 
serve the citizens of the State and to 
promote the general welfare of all of 
the people. Whether this responsibility 

has been fulfilled ran only be >!• 
mined iiy the activities and ace plish- 

menta of its alumni. Certainly the few 
whose names are mentioned above 

would indicate the task has Keen well 

done for the satisfaction of the elec 
torate has been expressed through the

The inevitable shocking and heart- 
breaking news has come to the doorstep 
of the University of Maryland and its 
Alumni Association. News has just 
reached us that Captain LeRoy Moore 
Cooke was killed in combat action in 
Korea. James Baido is reported miss- 
ing. Captain Cooke was scheduled to 
graduate from the University Law 
School in 1951, while Dr. Baido was a 
member of the Dental School class of 

Other casualties reported include 
Major Norman A. Miller '41 Agricul- 
ture, who was serving with the First 
Marine Division in 
Korea. As his wife 
expressed it, "Reds 
was one of the for- 
tunate ones who 
made the break- 
through from Chosin 
with only a slight- 
ly wounded hand."

upon many who have been .satisfied to 
simply let world events run theii 
course. The story of the Chongjin 
Reservoir in Korea may soon he for- 
gotten by some hut it has a double 
meaning for the University and the 
Alumni Association. It was here that 
Captain Cooke, a veteran of World 
War II, lost his life on November liT. 
A newspaper account recorded many 
miraculous escapes for this Marine in 
reconnaissance work against the Jap- 

Captain Cooke was the son of the 
late Howard J. Cooke, a prominent at- 
torney in Georgetown, Delaware. While 
studying law, Captain Cooke had been 
associated with an insurance firm in 

Capt. Cooke, who lost his life in the 
First Marine Division's effort to fiirht 
free of encircling Chinese Communist 
hordes in North Korea, was one of the 
heroes of the last war. He was award- 
ed the Silver Star for heroism following 
a Japanese air attack on Vella Lavella 
Island in the Solomon Islands on Octo- 
ber 1, 1943, when he led a detail to re- 
move badly needed ammunition from a 
burning ship in spite of the danger from 
exploding gasoline and shells. 

As a reconnaissance officer, ('apt. 
Cooke had many narrow escapes from 
death in his four yeas of service in the 
Marine Corps. His job was often to 
search out installations on Japanese- 
held islands. In one instance he with 
three others had been taken by subma- 
rine to his destination at night. His 
companions and he got into a rubber 
boat and paddled ashore. At a desig- 
nated hour and minute, three nights 
later, the party was to lie rescued by 
the returning submarine. At the very 
meeting spot, however, a Japanese de- 
stroyer lay at anchor. The quartette 
Stayed in hiding for three hours while

the destroyer weighed anchor and the 
group was rescued and delivered the in- 

This type of work Capt. Cooke 

turned to in the Korean War. Letters 
received from him, written as late as 
November 24, spoke of the terrible suf- 
fering of his men and the unbearable 
conditions because of the below-zero 
weather and insufficient clothing. 

A graduate of the Georgetown High 
School, class of 1936, Cooke obtained his 
degree from the American University, 
Washington, D. C. and was active in 
athletics at that institution. 

He was for four years a member of 
the varsity football and basketball 
teams, and during his junior and senior 
years, was captain of the track team. 
During the final year he was a member 
of the Ail-American basketball team. 

Prior to his enlistment in the Marine 
Corps, he served as a life guard at Re- 
hoboth Beach and played professional 
basketball with the Washington Brew- 

Dr. Baido 

The first graduate of the School of 
Dentistry to be reported on the official 
Korean casualty lists is Major James 
Baido of the class of 1946. Although 
missing since the latter part of No- 
vember Jimmy's status was not offi- 
cially reported until early in January. 
As of February 1 the School has not 
received any further information con- 
cerning him; it is continuing to make 
inquiries through alumni who are serv- 
ing on the Korean front. 

Dr. Baido came to the B.C.D.S. from 
the University at College Park, where 
he received his B.S. degree. Born in 
the Philippines of parents who were 
members of the Igorote group, he was 
reared from infancy by a Baltimorean, 
Miss Eveline Diggs. Miss Diggs served 
for many years as a missionary on the 
islands. While a dental student Jimmy 
earned the high regard of his class- 
mates and his instructors. A lad of 
quiet dignity and genial personality, he 
was a meticulous operator and gave 
sure indications that as a graduate he 
would always be a credit to his alma 
mater and to his profession. 

Following his graduation in June of 
1946, Major Baido accepted a commis- 
sion in the Army Dental Corps. In Ko- 
rea he was assigned to the Medical 
Company, Thirty-first Infantry, of the 
Seventh Division. 

Wounded in Action 

Reported wounded in action in Korea 
is 1st Lieutenant William A. Patch, 
son-in-law of Col. Robert H. Fletcher, 
Washington, D. C. 

Lieutenant Patch is the son of Major 
General and Mrs. Joseph Dorst Patch 
of Philomont, Va. He attended Mary- 
land University and was graduated 
from Cornell University. 

General Patch was formerly Pro- 
fessor of Military Science and Tactics 
at Maryland. During World War II he 
commanded army troops in the final 
stages of the Battle of Guadalcanal.

George Hockman, President of '20, 
presided at the dinner and saw that 
everyone had a good time. John 
Conyngton, 1920, held the distance rec- 
ord, coming from Bryson City, N. C. 
(An unlucky state for Maryland on 
Homecoming Day.) George and Bill 
Sterling starred by bringing their 
daughters for us all to meet. 

As part of the entertainment, pic- 
tures from the 1918 and 1920 Reveille 
were shown on a screen. It was pleas- 
ant to see these youthful pictures of 
ourselves, and especially the pictures 
of the absentees whom we'd like to 
have seen in person.

ON TELE1 ision 

Former l'T Stars Helen Hereford 

and Ken Calfee have broken into tin- 
fast growing television industry. 

Miss Hereford of Upper Marlboro. 
Maryland, has been named associate 
producer at Product Services Group, 
Inc., New York advertising agency. 

Her assignment includes work on 
two current TV show.--, "Jack and Jill 
Varieties" and "Junior Talent Time." 

Before going to New York 
Hereford attended Georgetown Visita- 
tion Convent and Catholic University, 
receiving her A.B. degree from the 
University of Maryland. 

At Maryland she acted in the UT 
productions of "Antigone," "Elizabeth

"Crusades in Europe," a half hour 
WAAM package. 

Calfee appeared in the lead roles o\ 
such UT works as "Cyrano." "Othello." 
"Volpone," and several others. 


Despite the countrywide drop in en- 
rollment, the University of Maryland's 
registration for the current semester 
show only a very slight decrease. Re- 
ductions in student enrollment general- 
ly, are attributed to expiration of 
World War II ex-G.I. educational bene- 
fits and current demands of selective 
service with resultant future uncer- 

At Maryland, the decrease below the 
previous (September) enrollment, for 
the College Park and Baltimore schools, 
amounts to 3.9%. Registrar Alma II 
Preinkert reports the enrollment fig- 
ure for the present semester is 11,541. 
Last September, it was 12,016. 

The University's European schools 
show an increase of 388. 3,613 were 
enrolled in Europe last semester as 
against 4,001 now. 

Ten foreign countries are represent- 
ed by eighteen new students. Colombia 
leads with five, Venezuela*, China. Iran, 
and Bolivia registered two each, while

No, this is not a candidate for Homecoming 
Queen. This is Miss Dorothy T. Jackson. The 
26 -year-old Towson lawyer is the first Baltimore 
County woman to be elected to the House of 
Delegates. When better looking Delegates are 
sent to Annapolis, Maryland will send them. 

DOROTHY T. JACKSON, the first 
Baltimore County woman to be 
elected to the House of Delegates, is a 
26-year-old lawyer who still works on 
occasional week ends in her father's 
country store. 

Miss Jackson has cleiked in the 
store in Providence since she was 12; 
she hopes that she will be able to keep 
working there now and then despite

her new duties and title. 

She was a steady week-end worker 
in the store while completing the six- 
year A.B. and law degree courses at 
the University of Maryland in four 

Her past performance would suggest 
a dynamic personality — a younger edi- 
tion of Clare Booth Luce. 

However, she does not have a simi- 
lar personality and probably never 

She has a quiet manner, an easy 
smile and more than average attract- 

She looks about 26, although at one 
point in her courtroom experience she 
was mistaken for a young witness in- 
stead of a young defense lawyer. 

Filed Independently 

Miss Jackson filed independently as 
a candidate for the November 1950 
elections simply because she thought 
she would like being a member of the 
Legislature. She was amazed when 
she was asked to join the Christian 
Kahl ticket. 

It was the first time a Democratic 
organization in Baltimore County had 
asked a woman to join the official fam- 


The young lady accepted and re- 
warded her backers by winning the pri- 

mary and the general election. She ad- 
dressed voters every night except five 
from June to September. 

"I had no pet projects," Miss Jack- 
son explained. "I had very little to say 
about politics and the Legislature. I 
had too little first-hand experience 
with either. But I think that I am 
qualified to act intelligently and I know 
I will do my best." 

Miss Jackson is matter-of-fact in her 
approach to women in politics and the 

"I certainly am not suffering any 
feeling of persecution when I say that 
a woman has to work harder to get 
where she wants to go than a man, but 
it's a fact," she declares. 

Country School House 

The legislator attended elementary 
school in the Back River one-room 
schoolhouse. She was the first mem- 
ber of her family to go to college and 
attended the University of Maryland on 
a legislative scholarship. 

Her first legal work was as Tow- 
son representative of a Baltimore title 
company. She did all the firm's Balti- 
more County title work and feels that 
the branch of law dealing with prop- 
erty is her forte although she has taken 
all kinds of cases from murder trials to 

Her law practice, which Miss Jack- 
son describes as "not the busiest in 
Towson, but not the slowest either," 
requires most of her attention. On 
nights and week ends she does about 
the same things done by other people 
of her age group. 


Miss Emma Robertson, Talented Aviatrix, is Law Alumna, '40 

By Gerald I. Holeu 

Baltimore Sun 

ONE day ten years ago, Miss 
Emma ("All my friends call me 
'Bobbie' ") Robertson, graduate of the 
University of Maryland School of Law, 
1!)40, now president of the Women's 
Bar Association of Baltimore, was sit- 
ting on her front porch when she de- 
cided it would be nice to fly. 

She took a dollar-and-half plane ride 
over Curtis Wright Airport, liked it. 
and decided to take flying lessons. 

The Beginning 

She was just starting out as a lawyer 
and wasn't making too much money. 
So she paid for her flying lessons as 
her law career progressed. 

A t'ter a total of 35 hours and 6 
minutes of flying time, she won her 
pilot's license. 

Since then, Bobbie Robertson has 
flown over 800 hours, flying over the 
Atlantic seaboard from Montreal to 
Miami, and once making "a landing of 

discretion" in a hayfield on a West 
Virginia mountain. 

That was in 1945 when she and Miss 
Leah Schloss were flying home from 
visiting in Tennessee. Fog suddenly 
closed in on their single-engine plane 
and they were forced down. 

Soon mountaineers approached cau- 
tiously, Miss Robertson said, "and 
walked 'round and 'round the plane. 
Finally one of them got up enough 
nerve to ask, 'What's it made of?'" 

"We slept in the plane that night, 
and the next morning we backed the 
plane to the very edge of the hayfield, 
gunned the motor, released the brakes 
suddenly, and lurched to a take-off," 
Miss Robertson said. 

No Traffic Worries 

Today Miss Robertson takes off al- 
most every week end from the Glen 
Hurnie Airport in a single-engine four- 
seater that she owns with Harry 



Miss Emma ("Bobbie") Robertson. Maryland, 
(Law), "40. 

Bowen, Jr., for any place that suits 
her whim. 

She flys to Pittsburgh or New York, 
or the Eastern Shore, where she takes 
a swim. 

"You don't have to worry about the 
traffic and the ferry, either," she said. 

On Monday morning, she is back at 
her desk in the office of Wright, Rob- 

ertson & Dowell, poring over tax prob- 
lems. She has been a taxation lawyer 
since she graduated from Maryland in 
1 940. 

Miss Robertson said she became in- 
terested in taxation law after she was 

graduated from Goucher College in 
1934. She took a position as a code 
supervisor in a Treasury Department 
tax survey. 

"I decided that if so many people 
can make so many mistakes in their 
income taxes, there must be money in 
straightening them out," Miss Robert- 
son said. 

She started attending' law classes in 
1936, working in a law office during 
the daytime. 

Miss Robertson began flying the 
same year she started her law career. 

Asked how her mother, Mis. Charles 
S. Roberston, felt about her flying, 
Miss Robertson replied, "First she used 
to walk the floor and pray. Now she 
just prays." 

Civil Air Patrol 

Miss Robertson said she has flown 
her father on many of his business 
trips throughout the area. 

Miss Robertson, who is 37 years old, 
lives with her parents at 210 East Bel- 
vedere Avenue. 

In 1941, Miss Robertson joined the 
Civil Air Patrol and attained the rank 
of captain as an intelligence officer. 
She resigned from the CAP after the 
war, but is considering rejoining today. 

In March of this year, she was elect- 
ed president of the Women's Bar As- 
sociation of Baltimore. She was treas- 
urer of the organization in 1945. 

Miss Robertson said she once consid- 
ered teaching as a career, but, after 
some substitute teaching, she decided, 
"I didn't like teaching, definitely. I like 
to see the results of my efforts." 


Six members of the history depart- 
ment faculty represented the Univer- 
sity at two recent Historical Associa- 
tion meetings. 

Dr. Richard H. Bauer, associate pro- 
fessor of history, attended a Phi Alpha 
Theta, national honorary history fra- 
ternity convention, at Chicago. He 
was elected a member to the organiza- 
tion's national council. 

The University was represented at 
the American Historical Association 
meeting in Chicago by Drs. Gewehr, 
Merrill, Bauer, Johnson, Ferguson, and 

Professor Harold Davis, of American 
University and Dr. Gewehr are repre- 
senting the American Historical associ- 
ation in the National Conference for 
the Mobilization of Education. 

Dr. Gewehr addressed a meeting of 
the local Methodist ministers and, with 
Dr. Steinmeyer, professor of govern- 
ment and politics, participated in a 
panel discussion on "The World Situa- 
tion Today" before the Maryland Fed- 
eration of Women's Clubs in Baltimore. 


By Talbot T. Speer 

IN facing the year 1951, we do so 
with the realization that our Na- 
tion and our University face the most 
trying times that have ever been en- 
countered in the history of America. 

We are faced by Communism at 
home and abroad and by a dreadful 
strain upon our economic system. 

Our University and its alumni are 
called upon to take part in this great 
emergency, and we have a Governor of 
the State of Maryland, the Honorable 
Theodore McKeldin and the new United 
States Senator, John Butler already 
representing us. It is time for clear 
and honorable thinking and our insist- 
ence upon facing the facts as Patrick 
Henry faced them, speaking to the con- 
vention of citizens in Richmond, Vir- 
ginia on March 23, 1775, in which he 
said, "For my part whatever anguish of 
spirt it may cost, I am willing to know 
the whole truth ... To know the worst 
and provide for it. I have but one lamp 
by which my feet are guided and that 
is the lamp of experience. I know of 
no other way of judging of the future 
but by the past .... 

"Let us not, I beseech you, Sir, de- 
ceive ourselves longer. 

"I know not what course others may 
take. But as for me, Give Me Liberty 
or Give Me Death." 

We are now facing a life or death 
struggle of our Nation. The year ahead 
will bring many tests and strains and 
we are most thankful that we have at 
the head of our University our splendid 
President Dr. H. C. Byrd, who with his 
years of experience, will be of tremen- 
dous help to us. 

I want to congratulate most sincere- 
ly our immediate Past-President, C. V. 
Koons, and the Past Vice-Presidents, 
Dr. Win. H. Triplett and Mrs. Hazel 
Tenney Tuemmler for the fine work that 
they did in the past year. Their efforts 
brought us a long way in alumni pro- 
gress. Also, I want to especially com- 
pliment Dave Brigham, who took over 
our organization when it had not been 
brought together and through his 
splendid efforts and personality, 
brought all of the different schools into 
our General Alumni Council with the 
most splendid spirit and enthusiasm. 

During the year, we welcomed the 
new club representatives into the Coun- 
cil, and we look forward to 1951 with 
the determination of forming five or 
ten more clubs. It is our hope to have 
a club in each county and large city of 
our State.

Eight members of the University 
faculty attended a meeting of the 
American Council on Education in 

Dr. Harold Cotterman, Dean of the 
Faculty, represented the University. 

Other representatives were: Geary 
Eppley, representing the National

ican Society of Engineering Education. 

Also present at the meeting were 
Dean J. Freeman Pyle of BPA, and 
Dean Joseph Ray of CSCS here. 

Problems concerning the present 
emergency manpower situation and 
G.I. education were discussed by the 
group. Education's place and respon- 
sibility in civil defense was also con- 
sidered at the meeting. 


Dr. Richard H. Bauer represented the 
local chapter of Phi Alpha Theta, na- 
tional honorary history fraternity at 
the national convention held at Chi- 
cago in December. He was elected a 
member of the National council of the 
organization. Members of the History

Assistance to the European Program 

THE University of Maryland's 
European Program could not be 
made to work without the assistance of 
the Troop Information and Education 
Divisions of the Armed Services. The 
problems of students and teachers in 
the various centers in Europe are taken 

first to the I. and E. officer. The I. and 
E. officers give important assistance in 
connection with surveying the course 
needs of students, publicizing offerings, 
registering students, providing class- 
rooms, assisting in the reproduction of 
quizzes to be given, arranging for quar- 
ters for teachei's, and many other mat- 

Every center at which the University 

of Maryland offers work has an I. and 
E. office. This office handles many 
matters besides the educational pro- 
gram of the University of Maryland. 
At the larger centers, the I. and E. offi- 
cer usually has a civilian education 
adviser who helps him in matters re- 
lating to the University's program. 
Two civilians who have been of great 
assistance in the University's European 
Program are Mr. Egbert Hunter, Edu-

Professor Ralph Lounsberry Conducts a History Class 

Students Gather at Bulletin Board 


Dependent boys and girls of American personnel in EITCOM and U.S.F.A. are students at Maryland's European branches under the College 
of Special and Continuation Studies. This is in addition to regular off duty classes for military occupation personnel. At the outset there were no 
upper level schools for dependent children in EUCOM. The school is located at McGraw Kaserne, in Munich. The University also provides excellent 
accommodations for the students. 

services. While it is conceded that the 
armed services must derive the maxi- 
mum of benefit from the equipment 
dollar, I. and E. emphasizes the fact 
that the armed services must also de- 
rive full utility from the men in the 
armed services. 

The work of Troop Information and 
Education falls into two principal 
groups: first, information, and second, 
education. The first essential for the 
man in the armed services is that the 
nature of his mission be explained to 

him. Troop Information and Education 
takes him for a minimum of one hour a 
week on matters of information con- 
nected both with the army and with 
public and international affairs. An- 
other of I. and E.'s responsibilities is 
the provision of daily radio broadcast- 
ing programs overseas, and the publi- 
cation of full-blown daily overseas 
newspapers like "Stars and Stripes." 
It publishes post and unit newspapers 
throughout the world. 

Another important aspect of T. I. 


This is the oldest part of Heidelberg, looking across the city to Heidelberg Castle. The Castle is 
maintained for the benefit of tourists, who <ome to get from it a glimpse of the Germany that used 
to be. 

The office of the University of Maryland in Europe is in the beautiful little city of Heidelberg. 
Heidelberg is located on the banks of the Neckar River, which is a tributar> of the Rhein. The city 
lies at the edge of the Rhein plain. In one direction from Heidelberg the country is flat: in the other 
direction there are hills and mountains. The city itself is built along steep river bluffs. 

There are many points of interest in Heidelberg. Some of them are shown in the accompanying 
picture. Tin- city of Heidelberg was not damaged in the bombings of World War II. 

The University of Heidelberg is as famous as the city itself. One of its buildings, constructed fol- 
lowing the first World War from funds given by an American, has been turned over to the Heidel- 
berg Military Post Troop Information and Education Division. The third floor of this building houses 
the offices of the University of Maryland, 

and E. functions is the program point- 
ing toward the raising of the academic 
levels of all persons in the armed ser- 
vices to carry them through the fifth- 
grade level in education. Educational 
instruction through the eighth-grade 
level is provided for all non-commis- 
sioned officers. I. and E. also provides 
opportunities in high-school work for 
those who have the desire and ambi- 
tion to go through with it. Instruction 
is provided by the armed services 
through high school levels. When the 
armed services get to the college level 
they do not always attempt to provide 
the instruction themselves. They some- 
times ask for help from civilian insti- 
tutions. There is some extensive work 
by correspondence, offered by the 
United States Armed Forces Institute 
(USAFI) at Madison Wisconsin. The 
great bulk of the college-level work be- 
ing done with the cooperation of the 
T. I. and E. Divisions, however, is in 
the form of residence work taken under 
instruction from civilian colleges and 
universities. Perhaps the most exten- 
sive of all the programs sponsored by 
I. and E. at this level is that of the 
University of Maryland. The Univer- 
sity of Maryland conducts classes not 
only in the European Program but also 
at the Pentagon, at Boiling Field, and 
at many other military installations. 

S.6.A. President's Trip

Student Government association at Col-

from a visit to the European schools. 

"Where can we obtain Maryland 
pennants and decals?" was a frequent 
question, he said, adding, "They treat- 
ed me as though I were the President 
of the University. It was tremendous!" 

Stone was selected by Dr. Joseph M.

Continuation Studies, to represent the

Stone stated that Col. William C.

Alumni of the Pittsburgh area faced 
a snowstorm and the usual rush to pre- 
pare for Christmas when they gath- 
ered at the Webster Hall Hotel on De- 
cember 15 to enjoy a social gathering 
and to lay the groundwork for the for- 
mation of an alumni club. 

The affair was directed by Martin L. 
Brotemarkle '37 Engr., Herbert 0. Eby 
'32 A&S, Gordon A. Kessler '28 A&S, 
and J. A. Fullerton, the father of Mary- 
land's outstanding quarterback. Bert 
Eby served as toastmaster and intro- 
duced Alumni Secretary Dave Brigham 
and Coach Jim Tatum for talks which 
concerned the formation of an alumni 
club and the future of football at the 
University of Maryland. Movies of the 
Michigan State game were shown and 
were followed by a midnight dinner. 

Interest in the formation of a club 
was strong and an organizational meet- 
ing was scheduled for February 9 in the 
Colonial Room of the Webster Hall 
Hotel. Gordon Kessler was named to 
handle the reservations. 

Those attending the first Pittsburgh 
meeting included: A. Finegold '24 Med.,

The award of 78 post-graduate and 
post-doctoral fellowships to 47 univer- 
sities, and grants-in-aid to 10 uni- 
versities to "stock-pile" knowledge 
through the advancement of fundamen- 
tal research, has been announced by 
the Du Pont Company. 

An authorization of $390,400 was 
provided by the company for these 
awards. They are for the 1951-52 aca- 
demic year. 

Granting of the fellowships is a con- 
tinuation of the company's plan origi- 
nated in 1918 to encourage graduate re- 
search in chemistry. It has since been 
expanded to include other fields. It pro- 
vides support for pre-doctoral and post- 
doctoral training of students in these 
branches of science in institutions of 
higher learning. 

The grants-in-aid to universities are 
for unrestricted use in the field of fun- 
damental chemical research. They pro- 
vide $10,000 for each of 10 universi- 
ties, all of which received similar 
awards for the present school year. The 
company also provided $20,000 to the

of the University of Maryland's central office 
in Europe. 

University of Chicago for a calendar 
year 1951 membership in its Institute 
for the Study of Metals. 

The universities themselves select 
the research projects for which the 
grants will be used, the only stipula- 
tion being that they be free from any 
commercial implications at the time the 
work is initiated. The company em- 
phasized that there shall be complete 
freedom in the communication and pub- 
lication of the results of the research 
work supported by the grants. 

The selection of candidates for fel- 
lowships and the choice of problems on 
which they are to work are, as in the 
past, left to the universities which re- 
ceive the awards. Individuals are un- 
der no obligation with respect to em- 
ployment after completing work under 
this plan. 

Post-graduate fellowships in chem- 
istry were awarded to Brown, Cali-

Maryland with 

With General Electric 

Eng. ), of the General Electric 
Company's Chemical Department has 
been appointed Manager of Sales Plan- 
ning and Analysis for the Laminated & 
Insulating Products Division, according 
to an announcement from Pittsfield, 
Mass. by Edward G. Gray, Sales Man- 
ager of the Division. 

A graduate of the University of 
a degree in mechanical 
engineering and of 
the Columbia Uni- 
versity School of 
Business Adminis- 
tration, Mr. Boulter 
spent 3 years with 
the Army Air For- 
ces as a flight engi- 
neering instruc tor 
during World War II. 
He joined the Gen- 
eral Electric Com- 
pany in 1948 on the 
sales training 
that time he has spe- 
cialized in the sale of G-E Textolite in- 
dustrial and decorative laminates in the 
Cleveland and Chicago areas. His pres- 
ent appointment will locate him in 
Coshocton, Ohio. 

Spring Rally 
Initial plans I . '< been made for the 
traditional Engineering Spring Rally 
to be held in the courtyard of the Ross- 
borough Inn on Saturday, May 12. An 
outstanding feature of the rally will be 
a recognition ceremony by alumni for 
faculty members who have served the 
College of Engineering and the Univer- 
sity for at least a quarter of a cen- 
tury. Special attention will be given 
members of the graduating class, who 
are to be guests of the alumni for the 

Mr. Boulter 

course. Since 

A committee consisting of President 
Saunders, Howard Biggs, and Charlie 
Moore will direct the planning. Reg- 
istration and an informal reunion will 
commence at twelve o'clock with a spe- 
cial program planned for 1:00 P. M., 
and a buffet luncheon will be served at 
1:30 P. M. 

At a recent meeting of the Board at- 
tended by Dean Steinberg and other 
alumni officials committees were named 
to handle the program for the year, 
publicity, awards, membership, and job 
placement. The names of these com- 
mittee members are withheld from pub- 
lication subject to acceptance of these 
responsibilities. The Publicity Commit- 
tee will receive assistance from Board 
members who have agreed to contact 
members of their respective classes in 
an effort to obtain information for pub- 
lication in MARYLAND. The Job 
Placement Committee will serve as a 
clearing-house for information on op- 
portunities and openings for alumni 
who may be interested in changing jobs 
or locations. Responsibility for plac- 
ing members of the graduating classes 
will remain with the Dean and faculty 
of the college. 

Announcement was made at the 
Board meeting, held at the home of 
Colonel Saunders on January 29, that 
the Engineers topped alumni of all 
schools of the University in the per- 
centage of alumni subscribing to 
MARYLAND and participating act- 
ively in the General Association. 

Education Committee 

A three-point program to expand the 
activities of the Committee on Educa- 
tion of the President's Conference on 
Industrial Safety, with a system of 
subcommittees organized in 13 indus- 
trial regional groups to further the 
work of the national committee, was 

announced by Dean S. S. Steinberg of 
the College of Engineering, at a meet- 
ing of the Conference's Coordinating 
Committee. Dean Steinberg was re- 
cently appointed chairman of the Com- 
mittee on Education and has been at 
work on the reorganization plan for 
several months. 

More than 350 years before the 
President's Conference on Industrial 
Safety, Shakespeare had a word for it: 

"The purpose you undertake is danger- 
ous ; — why that's certain ; 'tis dangerous 
to take a cold, to sleep, to drink ; — but I 
tell you, my lord fool, out of this nettle, 
danger, we pluck this flower safety." 

Shakespeare's uncommon foresight 
lay ignored throughout the entire in- 
dustrial accident prevention movement 
until out of the second act of "King 
Henry the Fourth," Dean Steinberg, 
Chairman of the Committee on Educa- 
tion, plucked the quotation. 

From Ireland 

Professor John L. Synge, Visiting 
Research Professor with the Institute 
for Fluid Dynamics and Applied Math- 
ematics, for the coming semester, re- 
ceived his B.A., M.A., and Sc.D. from

He has written papers on Riemannian 
geometry, relativity, dynamics, hydro- 
dynamics, elasticity. 

Small World 

A letter has just been received from 
Howard L. Cromwell '47, Engineering. 
He says: "As manager of the New Or- 
leans plant of the Stauffer Chemical 
Company, I'm often called on to enter- 
tain 'visiting royalty.' One such, last 
summer, was the new manager of our 
Freeport, Texas plant, a fellow named 
A. M. 'Jake' Powell. I invited him to 
dinner at home and while here he no- 
ticed one of my year-books, asked the 
name of the school to be sure, then 
confessed that he is also a Maryland 
alumnus of about 1940 (Arts & Sci- 
ences — Chemistry). We then remi- 
nisced. It's a small world, after all." 

Southern Honors 

Louis W. Ehrlich, majoring in Chem- 
ical Engineering; George C. Martin, 


majoring in Civil Engineering; and 

Newell S. Bowman, majoring in Chem- 
istry at the University of Maryland have 
been selected by the Southern Associa 
tion of Science and Industry as among 
the 200 top college seniors majoring in 
scientific courses for appoint menl as 
honorary members of the Association. 
Fourteen Southern states' universities 
are cooperating in this program to con- 
serve the South's greatest resources, 
its most talented young men and 

"This new program is intended to ac- 
quaint our best science students with 
the opportunities which now abound in 
the South and to encourage these su- 
perior students to stay here and apply 
their talents after graduation," SASI 
President Paul W. Chapman. 

Each of the students selected will, 
for one year, receive SASI bulletins 
concerning Southern research findings 
and industrial developments and will 
be invited to attend conferences to hear 
reports from Southern leaders in in- 
dustry, education, agriculture, and 
science, he said. 

Ehrlieh resides at 1842 Druid Hill 
Avenue, Baltimore; Martin at 625(5 
Coolidge Street. Washington; Bowman 
at 5606 Queens Chapel Rd., Hyattsville. 

The selections were announced by 
SASI Vice President R. Lisle Gould, 
Executive Vice President of the Manu- 
facturers Record Publishing Company, 

Safety Integration Procedures 

"As a result of recommendations 
made by the Committee on Education of 
the President's Conference on Indus- 
trial Safety at its meeting in Washing- 
ton last June, the University of Mary- 
land offered the use of its College of 
Engineering for an experimental en- 
deavor to determine a practical method 
of integrating safety 
into the engineering 
curricul a," said 
Dean S. S. Stein- 
berg in a report to 
the President's Con- 
ference on Industrial 
Safety. "The Bureau 
of Labor Standards, 
U. S. Department of 
Labor, was request- 
ed to cooperate in 
this project. The 
University of Mary- 
land was represent- 
ed in this coopera- 
tive movement b y 
Dean Steinberg, 
Professors C. A. 
Shreeve, Jr. and H. 
B. Hoshall of the Department of Me- 
chanical Engineering, Dr. Donald Ma- 
ley of the Department of Industrial 
Education. The Bureau of Labor Stand- 
ards was represented by Messrs. Marks, 
Blake, Griffin, Perzella, Wallach and 
Homan," Dean Steinberg went on to say. 
"The initial conference revealed that 
it would not be feasible to integrate 
safety into all the existing engineer- 
ing courses at this time," Dean Stein- 
berg continued, "therefore, for this first 
experimental year, integration activi- 

Dean Steinberg 

tics were limited to the Mechanical and 

Engineering curriculum, <>ut of which 

L6 courses were selected as best suited 

to integrate accident prevention. The 
experience gained in the selected con 
of the .Mechanical Engineering curri- 
culum will be utilized to develop inte 
gration material Later for the other en- 
gineering departments." 

After outlining the procedures for 

freshman, sophomore, junior and senior 
years," Dean Steinberg concluded, "it is 
our present thinking that integration 
into engineering is the proper approach 

since it builds the safety factor into 
specific courses, and causes the student 
engineer to think of production, effi- 
ciency, and safety simultaneously. This 
attitude somewhat parallels the phrase 
that 'safety and production should go 
hand in hand' rather than be separated 
What we hope for eventually is that in 
the future revisions of engineering 
textbooks, we may have safety pro- 
cedures incorporated into the instruc- 
tion material. 

"It would be difficult to evaluate 
mathematically the importance of our 
efforts in promoting safety education 
in the training of our future profes- 
sional engineers. We must realize that 
the men we are training in our engi- 
neering colleges today will be the in- 
dustrial leaders of the future, and their 
consciousness of safety should have a 
tremendous beneficial influence on the 
reduction of industrial accidents." 

Harold H. Franke 

Harold H. Franke, '39 Engineering, 
brings us up to date on recent events 
in his life. Until February 1950 he was 
chief structural designer for a large 
New York concern. He is now struc- 
tural engineer for the Fletcher- 
Thompson Co., of Bridgeport, Conn. 
His home is in Milford, Conn, where 
"summers are wonderful and we go 
swimming and boating from our back- 
yard." A daughter, Fredrika Taylor 
was born in June 1950. 


Dean S. S. Steinberg participated in 
a panel discussion at the meeting of 
the American Society of Mechanical 
Engineers. The topic of the discussion 
was "Professional Engineering Regis- 
tration in Maryland, Virginia and the 
District of Columbia." Dean Steinberg 
is chairman of the Maryland State 
Board of Registration for Professional 

Dr. Joseph S. Smatko

The Naval Ordnance Laboratory is 
the Navy's leading ordnance research 
and development center. Located i 
Silver Spring, Md., just five miles 
from the Nation's capital. NOL has 
within its 873 acre tract some of the 
most unusual scientific facilities in the 
world. Among these are the famed 
White Oak wind tunnel in which Navy 
scientists conduct work on rockets and 
guided missiles. Speeds corresponding 
to 7500 miles per hour have already 
been recorded in these tunnels. The 
NOL Betatron, a giant 10,000.000 volt 
mobile X-ray generator can generate 
rays powerful enough to penetrate six- 
teen inches of solid steel. Among the 
most recently completed of White Oak 
facilities is the "anechoic" or echoless 
loom. In this chamber, lined with 
30,000 sound absorbing wedges, echo is 
reduced to less than a f rait ion of one 
percent as opposed to almost 100 per- 
cent echo heard in the ordinary room. 

E. David Metz joined the staff of the 
Naval Ordnance Laboratory as a chem- 
ical engineer in the Chemical Division 
of the Engineering Department. Metz 
attended Maryland University from

Air Force Qualifications 

DUE to the recent expansion of the 
Air Forces and the urgent need for 
college trained officers, recent informa- 
tion disseminated from the Department 
of the Air Force has indicated that cer- 
tain students who were formerly in- 
eligible for enrollment in the Advanced 
ROTC course, may now qualify under 
certain limitations. 

This program has been worked out

To Florida 

Twenty senior Air Force ROTC ca- 
dets made a flying trip to Eglin Air 
Force Base, Florida, as part of their 
military studies. 

At Eglin Field, the home of the Air 
Proving Ground Command, the cadets 
were shown the Air Force's methods 
of testing new planes and equipment. 

Lt. Col. Harold V. Maull, executive 
professor of air science and tactics, and 
Major James R. Locher, operations offi- 
cer, of the Maryland ROTC unit were 
in command of the group in a C-47 
military transport. 

This trip was one of several. By 
graduation time all senior ROTC ca- 
dets are expected to have made at least 
cue of the trips.

30, the Air Force will offer extended 
active duty tours to several thousand 
second lieutenants, to fill vacancies cre- 

•Physics. Chemistry , Biology, Bacteriology, 
Radiology, Biochemistry, 


ated by expansion of the Air Force au- 
thorized by Congress. These officers 
will he recruited largely from An 
Force ROTC graduates and all other 
second lieutenants in the USAF Re- 
serves who wish to apply for active 

First priority will lie given to second 
lieutenants requesting flight training 
and next in order are those with spe- 
cial technical training. Openings also 
are being offered for second lieutenants 
qualified for on-the-job training in a 
non-technical skill. 

The First Air Force area consists of 
the states of New York, New Jersey, 
Pennsylvania, Delaware, Connecticut, 
Rhode Island. Massachusetts, Maine, 
New Hampshire, Vermont, Virginia, 
Maryland, West Virginia, Kentucky 
and Ohio and the District of Columbia. 

The opportunity for extended active 
duty tours is open particularly to Air 
Force ROTC graduates. 


The Secretary of Defense announced 
a new basic policy for enlistment by 
college students in the armed services. 
The policy was recommended by the 
Assistant Secretary of Defense for 
Manpower, Mrs. Anna M. Rosenberg, 
and was concurred in by the Director 
of Selective Service, Major General 
Lewis B. Hershey, as well as the mili- 
tary departments, to prevent the waste 
to the nation and the damage to the 
educational system that is involved in 
having young men leave school in mid- 
term because they desire to enlist in 
the service of their choice before they 
are called for pre-induction physical 
examination by their local draft boards. 

The policy provides that students en- 
rolled in colleges or universities and 
thus automatically entitled to defer- 
ment for the school year in which they 
receive their induction notice, shall be 
allowed, to the extent of available open- 
ings in each service, to enlist in the 
service of their choice at any time in 
the two-months immediately preceding 
the final month of their school year. As 
in the past, each service would accept 
enlistments only to the extent that 
places were open for those who desired 
to enlist. Under the old rules no armed 
service would accept a voluntary en- 
listment after a man had received no- 
tice to report for his pre-induction 
physical examination. 

A young man called by Selective Ser- 
vice during the academic year now 
could continue his studies and still 
retain the right to his choice of service 
by enlisting in the period beginning 90 
days before the termination of the 
school year and ending 30 days before 
the termination date. Services accept- 
ing enlistments during this two-month 
period would not call the students to 
duty until they had finished their school 

The Secretary of Defense, General 
Marshall, expressed opinion that the 
new rules would prove of benefit to the 
students, the colleges and the national 
defense effort. He emphasized the im- 
portance to the nation of maintaining 
a vigorous educational system and 

eliminating the unsettled condition 
thai have developed on many cam 

puses as a result of large-scale enlist- 
ments by men who wanted to enlist lie- 
fore they received then Selective Ser 
vice calls. At the same time that the 
change in enlistment policy was an- 
nounced, General Marshall urged col- 
lege students enrolled in the Army. 
Navy, or Air Force Reserve Offirf 
Training Corps to make every effort, 
as a patriotic duty, to complete their 
courses. R.O.T.C. is a fundamental ele- 
ment in all Department of Defense 
planning for expansion and mainte- 
nance of the armed forces, General 
Marshall declared. For this reason, he 
said, the Selective Service Act defers 
from induction under its provision dur- 
ing all their college years selected 
R.O.T.C. students who sign agreements 
to accept commissions and to serve a 
minimum of two years on active duty 
in the military service for which they 
are being trained. General Marshal! 
stressed that all R.O.T.C. students who 
successfully fulfill the training and 
physical requirements are assured of 
commissions in the Regular or Reserve 
Components of the armed forces. 

The above information was promul 
gated by the American Council on 


The U. S. Marine Corps has an- 
nounced its first Officer Candidate 
Course since World War II. The course 
will enable college graduates with no 
military experience to become officers. 

Qualified graduates, or seniors in ac- 
credited colleges who will receive a 
baccalaureate degree this spring, other 
than in medicine, dentistry, or theology, 
and who will be less than 27 years old 
on July 1, 1951, may write for informa- 
tion to the Commandment of the Ma- 
rine Corps, Headquarters U. S. Marine 
Corps, Washington 25, D. C. 

Accepted candidates will be enlisted 
in the Marine Corps Reserve and sent 
to an intensive 10-week training course 
at Parris Island, S. C. this spring and 
summer. Graduates will be commis- 
sioned Second Lieutenants in the Ma- 
rine Corps Reserve and sent to the Ma- 
rine Corps Schools, Quantico, Virginia, 
for a comprehensive five months basic 
officers' course. 

Candidates who fail to qualify for a 
commission will be given the option of 
discharge from the Marine Corps Re- 
serve or assignment to active duty in 
enlisted status. 

A limited number of the graduates of 
this Officer Candidate Course may be 
offered commissions as career Marines. 


In order to meet the increasing need 
for Naval Reserve officers, the Navy is 
offering training for qualified college 

The training will consist of two an- 
nual six week's summer courses. 

The program includes plans for both 
men and women. Among the courses 
offered will be naval orientation, navi- 
gation, and seamanship.

From Alaska 

A letter from Mildred Cramer Cruz, 
Class 1937, from Anchorage, Alaska, 

"In May 1950 Miss Given, an Amer- 
ican Nurses Association representative, 
came to Anchorage and helped to form 
a territorial Nurses Association. Our 
by-laws have been accepted and in May 
1951 there will be a second territorial 
meeting of the nurses. Four districts 
have been formed within Alaska. We 
have urged the nurses to register in 
the territories, and we are progressing 
very well. 

"I was, of course, thrilled upon sev- 
eral occasions when someone would 
come up and say, 'I know where you are 
from' — somehow it made Maryland 
seem less far away. At the last nurses' 

meeting, I met a MJ88 Conner, from 
Baltimore. She had trained at M 
land General Hospital and graduated in 

"We have planned programs with 
wonderful material to draw upon. The 
Army is most cooperative with Lectures 

and films, as are also the drug com- 
panies. Our Nursing Association ha 
volunteered in the Civilian Defense 
Program, as well as the usual oivic 

"The most of my day is quite inter- 
esting; another nurse and 1 have 

opened a Children's Day Nursery. 

"Alaska has been besieged by epi- 
demics most of the year. Marly spring 
brought Typhoid Fever, early fall 
brought Poliomyelitis. The population 
has doubled since we came here to live. 
There are numerous transients, includ- 
ing nurses who rotate spring and fall. 
The airplane is of course Alaska's main 
source of transportation. 

"We had a second daughter born No- 
vember 10, 1949."

ScUof LAW 

Submits Research Report 

THE new Secretary of the Law 
School Alumni Association, and 
member of the Alumni Council, Dr. G. 
Kenneth Reiblich, after several months' 
work and assisted by Mr. Herbert H. 
Hubbard of the Maryland Bar (Law 
School Class 1950), submitted to the 
Legislative Council of Maryland in De- 
cember 1950 Research Report No. 29, 
recommending the adoption of an inde- 
terminate sentence law for defective 
delinq uents. The 
preparation of the 
proposed legislation 
was directed for the 
Council by its Com- 
mittee on Medico- 
Legal Procedure un- 
der the Chairman- 
ship of Honorable 
Jerome Robi n s o n, 
created to study this 
matter. The Legisla- 
tive Council unani- 
mously approved the 
recommended legis- 
lation with certain procedural amend- 
ments, and it has been introduced in 
the 1951 Session of the Legislature as 
House Bill No. 12. The Bill deals with 
a class of criminals, who, while not 
insane under the narrow common law 
definition of insanity, are either so 
mentally or emotionally deficient, or 
both, as to require special handling if 
imprisoned for crime; and in instances 
they can be rendered safe for release 
in society only after such treatment 
(if at all). It would establish for the 
first time in Maryland a procedure for 
handling this situation which, after 
studying the statutes of 19 other jur- 
isdictions, Dr. Reiblich recommends as 
a sound approach to the problem with 
due regard to the rights of the indi- 
vidual while giving society a much 
needed protection. 

For those who do not know him, our 
new Secretary and Council member is 
a native Marylander having grown up 
on a farm on Rolling Road, Baltimore 
County, where his parents still live. 
He attended the Evening Law School 
from 1925 to 1928 while completing his 
work during the day for a Ph.D. in po- 
litical science at the Johns Hopkins 
University, where he had received his 
Bachelor of Arts degree "cum laude" 
(Phi Beta Kappa) in 1925. He left 
Maryland in 1928 to teach Government 
at New York University and received 
his Juris Doctor degree from that school 
in 1929 and was admitted to the New 
York Bar in 1930. In that year, he re- 
turned to our School of Law as full 
professor teaching as such (until 1944) 
courses in Criminal Law, Domestic Re- 
lation, Sales, Evidence, Public Utilities, 
Adminstrative Law, Conflict of Laws, 
and Trusts. In the school year 1986-37, 
he was given leave of absence to work 
as a graduate fellow at the Columbia 

Law School, receiving his LL.M. degree 
in 1937. During the war, Dr. Reiblich 
became a member of the Legal Depart- 
ment of Consolidated Gas Electric- 
Light and Power Company of Balti- 
more working primarily on rate prob- 
lems of the Company before the Public 
Service Commission of Maryland and 
the Federal Power Commission, and 
court proceedings related thereto. In 
September 1949, he returned as full 
time professor to the School of Law to 
offer the courses in Constitutional Law 
and Administrative Law, in the day and 
evening schools, and Public Utilities in 
the day school. He was asked to do 
consulting work for the Company in 
relation to the conclusion of legal dis- 
putes on the special matters on which 
he worked. He is on the Board of Di- 
rectors of the Safe Harbor Water Pow- 
er Corporation. 

Dr. Reiblich was admitted to the 
Maryland Bar in 1935. He is a member 
of The Baltimore City and Maryland 
State Bar Associations; the American 
Bar Association (where he is currently 
the Maryland member of the Commit- 
tee on State Administrative Law and 
also of the Committee for reporting an- 
nual developments in Public Utility 
Law) ; the American Law Institute; the 
American Judicature Society; and of 
the honorary fraternities: Phi Beta 
Kappa, Phi Delta Phi (legal-social and 
honorary), Order of Coif (legal), and 
Scabbard and Blade. He is Chairman 
of the State Bar Association's Commit- 
tee on the American Law Institute and 
the Baltimore City Bar Association's 
Committee on Legal Publications. He 
has published "A Study of Judicial Ad- 
ministration in the State of Maryland"; 
Maryland Annotations to the Restate- 
ment of Conflict of Laws and the Re- 
statement of Trusts; The Baltimore 
City Police Commissioner's Digest of 
Criminal Law (1939); The Maryland 
State Police Digest of Laws (1940 co-

Co-eds Conduct Nutrition Experiment 
on Fish and Meat 

UGHT nutrition 
students ate 
three daily meals to- 
gether in the dining 
>room of the Home 
Economics buil ding 
for six weeks. Four 
of them ate fish for 
dinner every day. 
The other four ate meat every day. 
They volunteered for the experiment 
and were allowed to choose which pro- 
tein they wanted to eat for their forty- 
two dinners. The fish was fresh red 
salmon, lake trout, halibut and floun- 
der The meat was veal or beef. 

The basic diet was relatively low in 
protein. This was supplemented with 
sufficient meat or fish to make up forty 
to forty-five per cent of the day's al- 
lowance of protein for each student. 
All the foods were carefully weighed, 
the purpose of the experiment being to 
determine if there is any difference in 
the use of meat and fish protein by the 
human body. 

Ellen Pusey of Snow Hill was in 
charge of preparing the fish and meat 
in acceptable ways as well as prepar- 
ing the basal diet food. This was no 
small job. She cooked for ten each 
meal and was responsible for the 
weighed portions of food for each sub- 
ject. Later, she will conduct chemical 
analysis of the protein content of sam- 
ples of the diet. 

The inflexible routine of the experi- 
ment was planned and supervised by 
Margaret Graham of Maysville, Ken- 
tucky who is on leave as assistant die- 
tition from the U. S. Marine Hospital 
in Baltimore. In order to study body 
utilization it is necessary to know the 

exact intake and output of the body. 
It was her responsibility to get accu- 
rate samples for the chemical analyses 
which will determine the results of the 

This regimen set up by the two 
graduate students did not work any real 
hardship on the participants. Their pop- 
ularity increased at fraternity houses 
and social events for they were a part 
of a novel experiment. However, on 
big week-ends like the one of the foot- 
ball game with North Carolina State, 
it was difficult to refuse invitations. 
They had to stay on campus and a 
promise was a promise. All this was 
taken in stride and anticipated psy- 
chological problems were not evident. 

However, when the experiment was 
over freedom was welcomed. The group 
enjoyed a luscious meal of whatever 
each desired at a famous restaurant in 
Washington. In the following days the 
eggs at breakfast, the hamburger, the 
hot dog, would take on new values. 
Then to the surprise of all — the scram- 
bled eggs were just fair — as they al- 
ways had been. The experiment was

The sparks that set off this test 
were : 

An interest in diet experimentation 
by a graduate student (Margaret Gra- 
ham) looking to a future in diet therapy 
in the U. S. Public Health Service; an 
interest in the practical application of 
food composition which had taken on 
fuller meaning in graduate study (El- 
len Pusey and others); a desire of the 
College of Home Economics to contri- 
bute in a practical way to the health 
and welfare of the people of Maryland; 
a desire to assist in biological research 
work of other colleges and universities 
toward better national health. 

To mold these desires into one re- 
search problem that could be used for 
two master degree theses was the task 
of Miss Pela Braucher, Associate Pro- 
fessor of Foods and Nutrition. She 
came to Maryland last year with ex- 
perience in research with the Carnegie 
Institute of Washington, Pennsylvania 
State College, and Teachers College, 
Columbia University. Her teaching ex- 
perience has included courses at Rus- 
sell Sage College, Elmira College and 
New Jersey College for Women of Rut- 
gers University. Her approach to 
teaching is scientific; applied psy- 
chology and chemistry. She has a bach- 
elor's degree in chemistry and a mas- 
ter's degree in biological chemistry. 
Miss Brauscher's special interests are 
food and nutrition research and effect- 
ive teaching methods. Her aim is to 
make nutrition vital to people.

were: Maryalice Northover, Hyatts-

Erna Mae Behrend has been a very 
busy person since her graduation. She 
attended Teachers' College, Columbia 
University and received her M.A. de- 
gree in June 1935. Then she interned 
for one year at Presbyterian Hospital 
in New York as a dietitian. Her first 
position was at the Pottsville (Pa.) 
Hospital. There she had charge of the 
tray service and special diets and did 
some teaching of student nurses. 

Next she was on the staff of Doc- 
tors' Hospital in Washington in the 
training of employees, establishing rou- 
tines and policies of the hospital food 
service department. 

Then at the Norfolk General Hospital 
in Norfolk, Virginia, 1949, she faced 
a real test. Norfolk was second in 
percentage of war population. This 
meant shortage of hospital employees 
due to more attractive war time jobs 
and shortage of supplies, dishes and 
food problems. These problems also 
brought greater opportunities for ex- 
periences in special diet work, teaching, 
and in the hospital cafeterias and main 

Erna Mae's present position is nutri- 
tionist in the Medical College of Vir- 
ginia at Richmond. The Medical Col- 


lege Hospital established the Nutrition 
Clinic, only one of its kind in Virginia, 
to serve the Outpatient Clinic. The 
work has grown from an average of 24 
patients per month to the present aver- 
age of 219 patients per month, all types 
of ambulatory cases. 

Patients come from any of the 35 
clinics operating in the hospital. Erna 
Mae interviews the patient. She takes 
a dietary case history on every patient 
sent to the Nutrition Clinic. Then she 
works out an individual dietary plan 
with the patient. No printed diets are 
given the patients. Follow up teaching 
is done if necessary. 

She attends rheumatic fever, diabetic 
■ and prenatal clinics. At these clinics 
the doctor writes into the patient's 
chart the dietary prescription. Erna 
Mae then translates the prescription 
into terms and plans which the patient 
understands and can use. 

She visits markets and grocery stores 
to keep up to date on current prices 
and food supplies for part of her work 
is to help the patient plan his diet 
within his budget. City social service 
workers use her figures in determining 
the amount of financial assistance 
needed for their clients. She some- 
times visits schools and makes home 
visits if any kind of nutritional help is 

Angela Feiser Harkness, after grad- 
uating in '34, accepted a job as home 
economics teacher for the Consolidated 
Calvert County High School, Prince 
Frederick. It was the first for a regu- 
lar home economics program in the 
school. After a year and a half of 
teaching and becoming acquainted with 
the Calvert County folk and customs, 
she was asked to fill a vacancy in the 
office of the Extension Service as Home 
Demonstration Agent. This position 
she held for a period of 5 years, leaving 
to be married in September 1941, to a 
Calvert County attorney-at-law, David 
A. Harkness. They built a Cape Cod 
home near the Harkness home in a 
small community known as Mutual. 

With the outbreak of World War II 
she worked at several jobs, including 
case worker for the local Welfare Board. 
She was with them for a period of two 
years, when she was asked by the 
School Board of Calvert County to ac- 
cept the position of Supervisor of At- 

During the war years and since she 
has participated in many community ac-

By Egbert F. Tingley '27 

Jerry Hardy, '39 

JERRY HARDY, a Maryland grad- 
uate of the class of 1939 B & 
PA), was recently appointed Director 
of Advertising for Doubleday & Co., 
one of the country's major advertising- 
positions, with one of the largest pub- 
lishing concerns. Doubleday ranks 
33rd among national newspaper adver- 
tisers, and in his capacity as director 
of advertising Hardy is responsible for 
the spending of about four million dol- 
lars annually. 

Hardy has been connected with the 
Doubleday organization since 1946, 
joining the firm as a member of the 
publicity depart- 
m e n t. Before suc- 
ceeding to his pres- 
ent position, he was 
first adver t i s i n g 
manager of Double- 
day's trade book de- 
f partment, and later 

Mr. Hardy

for the Literary 
Guild, a Doubleday 

After leaving the 
L I University of Mary- 

f^ B I la,nd in 1939 > he 

worked for the 
Highway Education 
Board in Washington and later with the 
Automotive Safety Foundation. Dur- 
ing the war he served as a first lieu- 
tenant in the Air Force. Following 
his separation from the Air Force, he 
spent a year traveling in South Amer- 
ica before coming to Doubleday. 

At Maryland Hardy was editor of 
the "Old Line," and active in drama- 
tics as well as in journalism. He was 
a member of Phi Delta Theta, and was 
also tapped for membership in Omi- 
cron Delta Kappa, Pi Delta Epsilon, 
Alpha Kappa Psi, and Alpha Psi 
Omega. For a period following his 
graduation he represented the College 
of Business Administration in the 
Alumni Association. 

Hardy now makes his home in New 
York City. His wife, the former Tom- 
my St. Clair, also was graduated from 
Maryland in 1940. She was a member 
of Delta Delta Delta, and editor of 
"The Old Line" in 1940. 

Public Relations 

Members of the Baltimore Public Re- 
lations Council have agreed to guide 
the University of Maryland in setting 
up and developing a four-year, under- 
graduate curriculum in public relations. 

Appointment of the following educa- 
tion committee to meet with Alfred 
Crowell, head of the University's De- 

partment of Journalism and Public Re- 
lations, was announced by Joseph E. 
Shaner, chairman of the Baltimore pub- 
lic relations group, and Yale Merrill, 
chairman of its Executive committee: 

Willam T. Snyder, Jr., chairman, a 
public relations counsellor, 331 N. 
Charles St., Baltimore; Vernon Tho- 
mas, of the public relations department 
of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, 
Baltimore; Richard W. Darrow, direc- 
tor of public relations, Glenn L. Martin 
Co., Middle River, Md. 

Also, Jack Darneille, director of pub- 
lic relations, Fidelity Trust Co., Balti- 
more; and Thomas S. O'Donnell, direc- 
tor of public relations, City of Balti- 

A tentative curriculum for training 
students to enter the professional field 
of public relations upon graduation has 
been approved by the University on the 
basis of advice received by Professor 
Crowell from many of the country's 
PR leaders and organizations. 

As proposed, the first two years of 
the study are designed to give the stu- 
dent a broad educational framework. 
In the latter two years more emphasis 
is on technical courses for public rela- 

Students in the program will be ex- 
pected to put in a three-month intern- 
ship doing fulltime supervised work in 
a public relations office before they 
start their senior year of studies. 

March Meeting 

All alumni of the College of Business 
and Public Administration will be in- 
vited by letter to attend the March 
meeting of the BPA Alumni Board in 
the University Dining Hall. 

Together with other plans for the 
coming year, this step was decided 
upon at a meeting of the Alumni Board 
held January 20th at the Rossborough 
Inn at College Park. Following supper 
and the business session, those present 
adjourned to watch the Terrapins' 
thrilling 56-55 overtime basketball vic- 
tory over University of North Carolina. 

It was tentatively decided to schedule 
a Spring meeting of the Board on the 
Eastern Shore, probably at Salisbury, 
with the dual purpose of affording BPA 
alumni in that section of the State an 
opportunity to meet together, as well 
as to discuss plans to organize an 
alumni club on the Shore. 

Attending the meeting were Dr. J. 

"You ought to enter this story of yours, 
'Waving; Grain", in the Short Story Contest". 
"Oh. it wouldn't he elizihle. It's a serial." 

("O. A .'. Snorky, so it's corn!") 

Freeman Pyle, dean of the College of 
Business and Public Administration, 
and David L. Brigham, executive sec- 
retary of the Alumni Association. Dean 
Pyle discussed among other items the 
serious effects the Nation's military 
preparedness program was having on 
his College, pointing out that up to Jan- 
uary 20 at least 100 BPA students had 
left the University to join the armed 

It was also brought out by Dean Pyle 
that a number of his faculty are on 
leave of absence on Government work. 
Dr. Van Royen is in Tokyo, Dr. Plesky 
in Germany, Dr. Wright with the ECA, 
and Dr. Morrison with the State De- 
partment, where his close knowledge of 
Russia makes him an invaluable advi- 
sor. Dr. Frederick is serving as an ad- 
visor on transportation for the Govern- 
ment, and is also publishing a new 
book on that subject. 

Joseph C. Longridge, scholarship 
committee chairman of the General 
Alumni Council, outlined the salient 
features of his group's report which 
was presented at the December Council 
meeting and which is to be acted upon 
at its next session. Board members 
indicated approval of Chairman Long- 
ridge's recommendations. 

Results of the MARYLAND Maga- 
zine campaign, as announced by Alumni 
Secretary Brigham, showed that the 
College of Business and Public Admin- 
istration stood fifth among the Uni- 
versity groups in percentage of its 
alumni subscribing to the publication. 
Various plans were suggested to in- 
crease alumni subscriptions. 

Advisabilty of setting up a place- 
ment service for alumni was discussed, 
it being decided that a study committee 
would be set up if in the opinion of 
Dean Pyle such a group would serve a 
useful purpose at this time, particu- 
larly in view of the unsettled world 

The meeting was conducted by Eg- 
bert F. Tingley, Board president, other 
members being present including Ed- 
gar H. Coney, Charles B. Sewell and 
Mr. Longridge. 

News Men Honor Beard 

Gordon Beard of Baltimore, a senior 
in the Department of Journalism and 
Public Relations, was awarded a cita- 
tion as the outstanding student in that 
field among the 1951 graduates at the 
annual winter meeting of the Mary- 
land Press Association held February 2 
at the Lord Baltimore Hotel in Balti- 

The presentation was made by Nor- 
man Harrington, editor of the Easton 
(Md.) Star-Democrat, chairman of the 
association's editorial committee, which 
each year will honor the top student in 
the graduating class on the basis of 
scholarship, leadership and potentiality 
as a newspaper man. 

Gordon has been serving as Associ- 
ated Press correspondent at the Uni- 
versity specializing in sports reporting, 
and last summer served an internship 
with the Washington (D. C.) Star. He 
is president of Pi Delta, honorary jour- 
nalism fraternity, at Maryland. 


New Course in Kail 

For the first time, a new four-year 
curriculum in public relations will l>e 
offered students matriculating in the 
College of Business and Public Admin- 
istration next September, it is an- 
nounced by Alfred A. Crowell. head of 
the School of Journalism and Public 

Prof. Crowell declared that the de- 
cision to provide the new course was 
the result of a feeling on the pari of 
University officials that graduates were 
going into the public relations field 
without adequate training. School 
heads felt obligated to put in this new- 
major, he stated. 

It was also announced by Prof. Crow- 
ell that a standing- committee has been 
appointed by the Baltimore Public Re- 
lations Council and the Washington 
Chapter of the Public Relations Society 
of America to advise his department on 
the development of this public relations 

Nineteen seniors will be graduated in 
the School of Journalism and Public 
Relations this June. Enrollment is 
steadily increasing, pointing to larger 
classes in the future. 

Photography Studies 

Regular courses in press photog- 
raphy are now available to College 
Park students under the instruction of 
Alfred Danegger, who has also been 
named official University photographer. 

A new set of dark rooms has been 
provided in the basement of the old 
gymnasium building. Two courses will 
be offered, one in press photography 
and the other in picture editing. 

At Mather Field 

Captain Henry F. Benson (B. & P.A. 
'48) is attending the Bombardment 
school at Mather Air Force Base, Cali-

Texas and Santa Ana, California, then 
on to the advanced training at Math- 
er AFB. Following this he was as- 
signed to the nagivator school at Sel- 
man Field, Monroe, La. 

These schools qualified him to at- 
tend his current assignment, the bom- 
bardment school, at Mather. This 
course is designed to teach the man to 
be a triple threat, qualified in bom- 
bardment, radar and navigation. Upon 
completion of this course he will be 
awarded the coveted 1037 specialty 

Benson, on the soccer and boxing 
teams at Maryland, made the 8th Air

School of- 


By Dr. Joseph Biddix, Jr., '34 
Gardner P. H. Foley 

Quintero '18 Honored in Panama 

THE graduates of the School of 
Dentistry are rendering valuable 
health services in most of the states in 
this country and in a surprisingly large 
number of foreign countries. The great 
majority of our men are engaged in the 
private practice of dentistry. For vari- 
ous reasons — personal attitudes, eco- 
nomic limitations, restricted opportuni- 
ties — very few of the alumni are able 
to make contributions in the field of 
public health dentistry as an adjunct to 
their office practice. There are, how- 
ever, some men who are fortunate 
enough to be able to give highly neces- 
sary dental services to the socially or 
economically handicapped. These men 
are the good Samaritans of the profes- 
sion, who derive great profit from the 
gratitude of their patients and who re- 
gard this use of their professional ca- 
pabilities as the finest way of manifest- 

ing practically the ideal spirit of the 
health services. 

Dr. Eneas Quintero '48, of Panama 
City, Panama, has achieved wide recog- 
nition, public and professionally, for 
the work he has done as a member of a 
health service team that has as its pri- 
mary purpose the bringing of dental and 
medical aid to the inhabitants of the 
widely scattered and sparsely populated 
Indian villages of the interior sections 
of Panama. These people, who form 
10'/t of the population, were until re- 
cently without any kind of professional 
health services. 

Dr. Luis C. Prieto, Panama's famous 
dying doctor, is the founder of the 
unique and colorful unit that has 
brought relief from pain and improved 
health to thousands of eager and grate- 
ful patients. Dr. Prieto and Dr. Quin- 
tero are assisted by Miss Mary M. 
Ruiz, chief instructor in the School of 
Nursing at Santo Tomas Hospital. Be- 
cause of the difficulties imposed by the 
terrain, these three great contributors 
to the well-being of their fellow men 
are obliged to fly to their various des- 

Early on Saturday and Sunday morn- 
ings, Dr. Prieto takes off in his red 
and silver Cessna plane. The schedule 
includes visits to 12 towns every fort- 
night, 3 on Saturday and 3 on Sunday. 


After landing on the primitive airfields 
built by the natives for the visitations 
of their plane, the health group then 
is faced with the problem of getting 
to the villages by horseback or cart. 
An average of 200 patients are treated 
in each of the towns of the itinerary, 
or a total of 1200 each weekend. So 
great is the need that as many as 1100 
have appeared at a single clinic, where 
the maximum coverage could include 
only 200. 

As his contribution to this heroic 
struggle to raise the level of health of 
the people of the interior, Dr. Quintero 
concentrates on oral surgery. In one 
period of five months he extracted 2,000 
teeth. The element of time and the 
lack of money preclude all types of 
restorative work. Great progress has 
been made in overcoming the antagon- 
istic factors of superstition and folk- 
ways and getting the people to accept 
the methods of modern dentistry. 

The three members of the Flying 
Caravan have worked without financial 
support from the state. Besides work- 
ing without pay they have had to sup- 
ply their own equipment and materials. 
However, the amazing results accom- 
plished by this self-sacrificing trio — 
40'i- improvement in school grades and 
60$ increase in food production — have 
been widely publicized by the news- 
papers. This strong journalistic sup- 
port of the project has created a wide 
public interest that promises to 
achieve effective support from the vari- 
ous levels of Government. 

Dr. Quintero, a recent visitor to his 
alma mater, entered practice immedi- 
ately after graduation. In November 
he was elected president of the Associ- 
acion Dental de la Republica de Pana- 
ma. For his work with the Flying Car- 
avan he was cited by the President of 
Panama "for meritorious services."

Of Corn, and Shoes and Trotting 

Horses; of Football and Flying 


THE success story of Parker Mitch- 
ell might well begin on a football 
field remembered for its gravel and 
located at College Park. In the fall of 
1892, nearly sixty years ago, Parker 
Mitchell played on the first Maryland 
Agricultural College football team. 
Clifton E. Fuller of Cumberland was a 
quarterback on that team which includ- 
ed Samuel H. Harding, Dick Pue, Wil- 
liam A. Wooters, James W. Lawson, W. 
W. Skinner, Barnes Compton, Gus- 
tavus Z. Graff, W. T. S. Rollins, A. B. 
Worthington, Pearre C. Plough, J. G. 
Bannon, Sothoron Key, and Clay Wei- 
mer. Colonel Mahlon N. Haines, a life- 
long friend of Mr. 
Mitchell, played on 
the baseball team 
the following spring. 
The friendship 
which developed in 
those days between 
Haines and Mitchell 
continued to grow 
through the success- 
ful years that came 
to both. Haines be- 
came known as the 
"Shoe W i z a r d," 
while Mitchell expanded his activity to 
become one of the country's largest 
packers of Shoe Peg and Golden Sweet 

On the football team Mitchell played 
center in the days when the V Forma- 
tion was popular. The first game was 
played against Episcopal High at Alex- 
andria, Va. in October 1892, Maryland 
winning 10 to 4. The teams played 
thirty-five and forty-five minute halves 
with no time out. A touchdown count- 
ed four points while the extra point 
kick was scored as two. 

The canning business which Mr. 
Mitchell now operates was started in 
1882, by his father and uncle, under 
the name of F. 0. Mitchell & Bro. They 
were the first to pack the variety of 
Shoe Peg corn, which has grown so 
popular in this section. Their plant 
was located on a farm known as "Mul- 

Mr. Mitchell 

berry Point" which overlooked the 
Chesapeake Bay, and has since been 
taken over by the Aberdeen Proving 

In 1902 Frederick ()., a brother of 
Parker Mitchell, and Parker took over 
the firm of F. O. Mitchell & Bro. and 
established themselves at Ferryman, 
Md., acquiring land adjacent to the 
plant, and the acreage now amounts to 
about 2,000 acres, where they grow the 
sweet corn for their home plant. Fol- 
lowing the death of his brother in 
1939, Mr. Mitchell and his son Parker. 
Jr., have operated both the home plant 
and another at Kennedyville, Md. A 
cousin, R. Lee Mitchell, who took a 
short course at the Agricultural Col- 
lege, operates the Kennedyville plant. 
A grandson, Fred O., is a freshman 
in the agricultural school this year. 
It is hoped that he will continue the 

During the winter, Parker Mitchell's 
interests lie in his livestock farm and 
he has many ribbons to attest to the 
prize-winning stock he owns.

largest money winning pacer in 1940. 

Mr. Mitchell, who gives the appear- 
ance of being able to take the football 
field even today, maintains an office that 
reflects the homey flavor of the coun-

Food Technology 

Thirteen students became charter 
members of the new University of 


Maryland Student Section of the Insti- 
tute of Food Technology at an organi- 
zational meeting held on the campus. 
Membership of the new group is made 
up of students majoring in various 
branches of food technology. 

The Section's newly-elected officers 
are: President, Robert W. Moore; vice- 
president, Wilden M. Miller; and secre- 
tary-treasurer, James L. Martin. Spon-

Nurserymen Meet 

Maryland nurserymen and florists at- 
tended special short courses at the Uni- 
versity in January. 

Both groups heard a discussion on 
"Governmental Restrictions Affecting 
Florists and Nurserymen." Speakers 
from the national associations of each 
group presented this information. 

In addition to the research topic, the 
nurserymen heard discussions on "Pro- 
pagation of Woody Ornamental 
Plants," "Azaleas," "Principles of 
Good Landscape Design," "Special Fea- 
tures in the Lansdcape," "Carnation 
Diseases" and "Chrysanthemums the 
Year Round." 

The florists discussed regulation of 
day length for their various crops. 
They heard a talk on pot plants such 
as Azaleas, Hydrangeas, and Poinset- 

Sheep Producers 

A "Sheep Management Field Day" 
was held at the University in charge of 
J. O. Outhouse of the Animal Hus- 
bandry Department. 

The program was designed to answer 
questions being asked by both experi- 
enced and new producers. 

Sheep producers attending saw the 
demonstrations of many management 
practices which will increase profits 
They also had an opportunity to inspect 
the barns and other facilities. Exten- 
sion specialists and research workers 
were on hand to answer questions. 

Beef Cattle Breeders 
Beef Cattle Breeders' Day, held at 
the University with Dr. W. W. Green 
of the Animal Husbandry Department 
in charge, was a program to acquaint 
beef breeders with the latest beef cat- 
tle research from Maryland and other 

The program included talks on the 

present and future situation in 
cattle, selection of beef cattle, and an 
outline of the research in beef breeding 
now being conducted at the university. 
The calf feeding project being conduct- 
ed was explained and last year's and 

this year's results were presented. 

The group visited the barns and oth 
er facilities of the Animal Husbandry 

The program concluded with a ques- 
tion period concerning problems of the 
beef breeding business. Members of 
the Animal Husbandry Staff and promi- 
nent Free State beef breeders were on 
hand with the answers. 


University expansion will eventually 
call for the dismantling of two campus 

Greenhouses adjacent to the armory 
and music building a; c being replaced 
by three glass structures next to the 
beating plant on Baltimore Boulevard. 

Built in the century's first decade, 
the greenhouse near the armory con- 
tains botany experiments while the 
house behind the music building is used 
by horticulture students. Agronomy 
and entomology have no greenhouse 
space since their former plot by the 
wind tunnel was taken by the new en- 
gineering buildings. 

In addition to the three houses, one 
brick building is to be erected on the 
new site. Until this building is com- 
plete an occupancy date cannot be set 
although late spring or early summer 
is the current estimation of Dr. Conrad 
B. Ling, professor of horticulture. 

Omitting the future brick structure, 
the new houses now under construction 
required approximately $130,000. This 
money was received through a state 
appropriation from the 1949-1950 bud- 

"An area of 27,000 sq. ft. is the 
goal," Link explained, "but this will 
not be an increase over space that was 
formerly available." 

Departments of agronomy, botany, 
entomology, and horticulture will each 
have assigned greenhouse space equal 
in size to their previous quarters, Link 
continued, but modern equipment and 
facilities will ease research efforts by 
eliminating troublesome hindrances. 

Similar to the old buildings, the new 
houses are being built with steel frames 
and wooden sash bars to hold the glass. 
Vents will be in the ridge tops and on 
the sides. 

Each of the three new houses is di- 
vided in half. In this way any num- 
ber of the six sections can be used for 
different types of work and can be 
maintained under varying degrees of 
temperature and moisture. 

Four small sections, 8 ft. by 30 ft., 
will be available for work requiring 
careful observation. Altogether there 
will be 27 sections. 

Newly located, the greenhouses will 
be better exposed to sunlight. Link 
pointed out, and each of the 27 sections 
will have independent heat -control ap-

West Virginia led at half time 32

Blue Devils 49; Terps 10 

Maryland lost to Duke, 49 to 40. The 
Terps tried hard to stop Dick Groat, 
who already has broken Southern Con- 
ference scoring - records with an aver- 
age of 24.5. 

The Terps held him to 22, but he 
broke loose near the end of the half 
to all but erase the Terps' 10-point 
lead. Maryland held a 21-20 advant- 
age at recess. 

Brawley, who holds Maryland's all-

Terps 46, Cadets 41 

Maryland defeated V.M.I, at Lexing- 

Trailing by as much as 12 points 
earlier in the game, the Keydets had 
rallied to close the count to 44-41 with 
three minutes and 45 seconds remain-

Keydet hands until after it scored a 
clinching field goal in the last few 
second of play. 

Terps 42; Spiders 33 

Maryland defeated Richmond, 42-33,

Terps 4; Hurricanes 4 

At Coral Gables auditorium Miami's 
student body, plus a large non-collegi- 
ate audience, stood and booed loud and 
long when Miami's Carl Bernardo re- 
ceived the decision over Maryland's 
George Fuller. All that evening and 
the next day folks stopped Fuller to 
tell him he won from here to there. 
However, the record in the books comes 
from the score board. Miami news- 
papers also panned the decision given 
by Referee Ray Moore, Columbia, S. C. 
While the score does not substantiate 
it, such compliments as "Best team 
we've had here in a long time," came 
Maryland's way. While any number of 
experienced and competent referees 
cool their heels officiating remains the 
weakest feature of college boxing. 

What should have been a 6 to 2 or at 
least a 5 to 3 win for Maryland came 
up 4-4. 

Said gracious Jack Harding, Miami's 
director of athletics, "That was a 
tough break; we don't like to win them 
that way." He added, "Why wasn't 
Referee Pete Sarron assigned? He's 
one of the best in the country." Mary- 
land had suggested Sarron, who was at 
the ringside. 

Bernardo had a slight edge in round 
1, lost it in 2 and was soundly trounced 
in the 3rd. Gasps of amazement min- 
gled with boos at the decision. 

After the final bell and before the 
decision had been announced, Bernardo, 
ever the gentleman-sportsman, said to 
Fuller, "George, you sure did beat me 
tonight." Miami's coach, Billy Regan, 
added, "Yes, you certainly won this 

At 175 Maryland's Cal Quenstedt 
outclassed Leo Furlong all the way, 
sending him sailing through the ropes 
into the audience just as the final bell 
rang, as a result of a smashing upper- 
cut to the body and a follow-up cross 
to the chin.

Game little Davy Shafer, Maryla 
displaying a lot of heart and willing- 
ness, was outclassed by experienced 
Archie Slaten, national scholastic 
champ, and star of the Miami team. 
This was at L30 where Davy has been 
a K'eat team player, filling in an emer- 
gency slot against rugged opposition. 

125 pound Jacky Letzer, Maryland, 
was up against too much experience in 
Mickey Demos. Miami Veteran. Both 
counter-punchers, the bout was scored 
evenly going into the final frame. Then, 
with need for aggressiveness to clinch 
the nod, Demos had a bit too much on 
the ball for the Terps' little fellow, 
who, before he's through is going to do 
some more winning. Letzer made a 
swell go of it. 

Terps 5; Army .'{ 

At West Point Maryland won from 
Army, 5 to 3, George Fuller, Terp 
heavy% pinning on a swell boxing lesson 
over Jack Chamblin. 

At 175 Terp Cal Quenstedt took the 
measure of Jim Mclnerny. A terrific- 
last round, with Cal pitching a bevy 
of potent left hooks, sewed it up. 

At 165 the Terps' Don Oliver lost a 
one point decision to Lou Mourin, rug- 
get cadet. Oliver got off to a slow- 

At 155 Paul Oliver outboxed Cadet 
star Ken Herring to take the decis-

Army forfeited at 135 to Maryland's 
undefeated captain. Andy Quattrocchi. 

At 130 Maryland's Freddy Carnesale, 
in his first start, was edged out by 
Cadet Bill Shine. Carnesale made a 
good try of it against a more experi- 
enced boxer. 

At 135 the Terps' little Jackie Letzer 
ran into tough luck and a wide right 
band swing that sent him into the 
ropes. He bounced out into another 
shot like that and went down. Up on 
his feet without a count Referee Max 
Novich, M.D. from Newark, who was 
quite a boxer at North Carolina, stop- 
ped it. Mebbe too soon? (Better too 
soon than too late.) Dr. Novich's ref- 
ereeing was the best Maryland has 
encountered in a long time, at home or

The handsome, black-headed flyer 
was killed when his T-33 jet trainer 
plunged into the woods 2 miles south 
of Ritchie in Prince George's County, 
ending a sensational career. 

Capt. Gentile had given no indica- 
tion he was in trouble before the crash. 
Witnesses saw the plane flying low, 
then suddenly dip and shear off the top 
of a tall tree as it fell, scattering 
wreckage over a wide area. 


Captain Don Gentile, World War ITs "Cap- 
tain Courageous," lauded by Roosevelt, Churchill 
and CJoering. crashed in training flight, ending 
sensational story-hook career of Maryland stu- 
dent. He was posthumously promoted to the 
rink of Major. 

The plane burst into flames and set 
the woods on fire. For more than an 
hour fire departments from Andrews 
Field and five communities battled the 

With Capt. Gentile died Sergt. Gre- 

gory D. Kirsch, 20, who went along for 
his first jet plane ride. 

The plane crashed about 20 minutes 
after Capt. Gentile hopped off from the 
base on a proficiency flight. 

A part of his storybook career was 
his marriage to his schoolday sweet- 
heart, Isabella Masdea, when he was 
on leave in June, 1944. 

They lived at 4331 Rowalt Drive, Col- 
lege Park, Md., with their three sons, 
Don, Jr., 5; Joe, 3, and Pat, 1. 

Capt. Gentile's homecoming in 1944 
was marked by a wild celebration by 
every citizen of Piqua, Ohio. But for 
his mother it was an occasion to revisit 
the altar where she had given thanks 
years before when Capt. Gentile as a 
boy was saved from death. 

The Air Force had to admit with a 
red face that it rejected young Gentile 
because he lacked college education. He 
then enlisted in the Royal Canadian 
Air Force and served three years before 
the U. S. Air Force gave him a com- 

Folks around Piqua remembered 
when Young Don, when most boys were 
playing baseball, was interested in avi- 
ation, and how he learned to fly in 
high school. He had 300 hours to his 
credit when he became an RAF cadet 
in June, 1942. 

He scored his first kills on German 
planes in the Dieppe raid. He went on 
to fly 350 combat hours for the United 
States, making all his kills during a 
two-year period from 1942 to 1944. He 
shot down 20 planes in the air and de- 
stroyed six more on the ground. 

Capt. Gentile entered the University 
of Maryland in June 1949 for two years 
of study in military science under the 
Air University Program. He was to 
have received his diploma in June, but 
his work was completed just before his 

The Air Force could not ascribe the 
cause for the crash. 

Gentile was the first man to break 
Captain Eddie Rickenbacker's World 
War I record of enemy aircraft de- 

Captain Gentile's record shows 32 
enemy aircraft destroyed in missions 
over Germany, France and Poland. 

He entered the Royal Air Force in 
1940 and transferred to the U. S. Forces 
in 1942. He flew British Spitfires and 
American fighters, P-47 and P-51. 

In the British service Gentile was 
teamed with the famous Major John T. 

Captain Don S. Gentile was a mem- 
ber of the Royal Air Force Eagle 
Squadron in which he flew 66 sorties, 
51 combat missions, destroying two 
German aircraft on the famous Dieppe 

Captain Gentile's decorations read as 
follows: Distinguished Service Cross 
with 1 oak leaf cluster, Silver Star, 
Distinguished Flying Cross with 7 oak 
leaf clusters; Air Medal with 3 oak 
leaf clusters; European Theater of 
Operations Ribbon with 5 Bronze stars; 
Allied Service Ribbon; British Service 
Medal; Presidential Unit Citation with 
2 oak leaf clusters; Royal Air Force 
Wings; Eagle Squadron Crest which 
was presented by the King and Queen 


of England, in addition to the French 
Croix de Guerre, Belgian Croix de 
Guerre with palms, Italian Silver Medal 

for Valor with Star, Italian War Cross, 

ETO Medal with two stars, Victory 
Modal, Defense Medal, American The- 
atre Medal. Captain Gentile is cred- 
ited with shooting down the German 
Ace, Kurt Yon Meyer, who was offi- 
cially credited with 150 allied victories. 

Mr. Churchill said at a banquel in 
England during England's darkest 
hour right after the Dunkirk raid: "100 
Gentiles and 100 Godfreys and Kn gland 
could sleep easy this night, for Eng- 
land's ground would be covered with 
luftwaffe come morning." 

Later Herman Goering, the leader of 
the luftwaffe said, "I would give two 
squadrons of 'Abbeville Kids' if I could 
be assured of the deaths of the Italian 
Gentile and the Englishman, Godfrey." 

The late President Franklin Delano 
Roosevelt, in his popular terminology 
in an address before the Senate, spoke 
of the flyers as, "Captains Courageous; 
the Damon and Pythias of the twen- 
tieth century."

Scoring from all angles and throt-

kan's Marylanders upset the Game- 
cocks 47 to 37, holding South Caro- 
lina's skyscraping center, Jim Slaugh-

centers, to only 14 points. The Game- 
cocks failed to tally a field goal until 
ten minutes had elapsed in the first 

The Terps got away in front with 
Brawley and Manis setting the pace. 
At the half Maryland had a 10-point 
edge at 28-18 and a 43-30 lead with 
seven minutes to play. They outclassed 
South Carolina all the way and the 
game left them in a 3-way tie with 
William & Mary and South Carolina 
for third place in the Southern Con- 
ference, where North Carolina leads 
and West Virginia is second. 

Terps 48; Indians 41 

The Terps scored a major upset with 
a 48-41 triumph over William and 

The Indians, who had lost only to 
St. John's of Brooklyn in three starts, 
trailed throughout the contest. 

Captain Lee Brawley led the Terps 
with 24 points on 9 field goals and 5 
of 7 foul shots. Many of Brawley's 
baskets were set up by Dick Koffen- 
berger, who directed the Maryland floor 

William and Mary was able to sink 
only three field goals during the first 
half, the first coming after 11 minutes 
had elapsed. Maryland led at that 
time, 11-6. 

Brawley then went to work and tal-

scored in the last nine minutes of the 
half, which ended with the Terps ahead 

Terps 46; Cavaliers 43 

Accuracy from the free throw line 
brought Maryland's Terps a hard-

The Terps converted 20 of 24 foul 
shots while the best the Cavaliers could 
do was 15 of 25. It was the second vic- 
tory of the season over Virginia. 

Brawley starred again as he gave 
the Terps an edge with good work at 
the backboards in addition to fine 
shooting. He tied Virginia's Kollman- 
sperger with 13 tallies.

Terps 52; Generals 43 
Maryland took Washington and Lee, 
52-43. For the Terps, Lee Brawley 
ripped the cords with 19 points. Dick 
Koffenberger was second high for 
Maryland with 11. 
Neither side substitut- 
ed during the entire 
first half. Maryland 
went ahead in the 
game in the early sec- 
onds on a looping shot 
by Don Moran. 

The Generals used a 
shifting zone through- 
out, but the Terps 
managed to penetrate it in the second 
half with three fast field goals at the 
outset by Brawley, Chuck Bengell and 
Dick Koffenberger. 

Terps 51; Rutgers 45 

Maryland won from Rutgers 51-45. 

Lee Brawley was high again, collect- 
ing 19 points. Dick Koffenberger, play- 
ing a masterful lay-up shot game, 
looped the nets for 11. 

The Terps got off to an 
early lead in the game I 
when Jim Johnson sunk a ■ 
free throw. The game was 
see-saw until 5 minutes 
and 15 seconds of the first 
half, when the Terps went 
ahead to stay until 3 and 
a half minutes remained 
when it tied, 16-16. 

Maryland took the lead again but 
with two minutes remaining in the 
half, the count tied at 23-all. At the 
half, Maryland led, 27-23, by virtue of 
Koffenberger and Jim Johnson hooping 
field goals. 

Maryland was in command through 
the second half and the closest the 
Scarlet team came to the Old Liners 
was 40-38 with six minutes to go. 

Terps 67; Tarheels 59 

It was Lee Brawley again as Mary- 
land took an early lead and stayed 
ahead all the way to defeat North 
Carolina 67-59, in a Southern Confer- 
ence game. 

Maryland's attack was paced by for- 
ward Brawley, who bucketed 25 points 
on 13 free throws and six field goals. 
He racked up 10 free throws in 10 at- 
tempts in the first half to provide the 
punch which sent the Terps pulling 

Other Maryland leaders were Jim 
Johnson and Dick Koffenberger, each 
with 11 points. 

Terps 48; Spiders 42 

Maryland turned on the pressure in 
the second half to defeat Richmond, 
48-42, at Richmond. 

Paced by Dick Koffenberger, who 
got 13 points, and Lee Brawley, who 
had 11, the Terps came from behind. 

Richmond ran up a 10-4 lead at the 
start. Maryland overtook the Spiders 
at 14-14 but Richmond was out in front, 
25-17, at intermission. 

After the half, Maryland rallied. 
Brawley's field goal deadlocked the 
count at 25-all. 

Brawley sank another layup to make 
it 27-25, but tied it up again at 27-27 

for Richmond before Don Moran tapped 
in a rebound to give Maryland a 29-27 
lead. The Terps were never headed 
after that. 

Navy 51; Terps 47 

Navy won a hard-fought game over 
Maryland, 51-47 at Annapolis freezing 
out a fourth quarter Terp rally. 

Navy was riding comfortably on a 
44-31 lead when the Terps began to 
roll. Paced by Brawley and Manis, 
Maryland overwhelmed the Middies in 
a seven-minute drive to pull within 
four points at 49-45. 

The Middies thwarted Terp efforts 
by freezing the ball in the final min- 

Maryland gave Navy a real battle 
all the way. 

Brawley and Manis led Maryland in 
scoring. Both registered four baskets 
and three goals for 11 points each. 
Manis, an Annapolis boy, was playing 
before his home folks and besides scor- 
ing heavily, turned in an excellent floor 

Terps 58; Hoyas 47 

Millikan's Musketeers slapped into 
bigger Georgetown 58-47 in a surprise 
win before a packed and screaming 
house at Ritchie Coliseum. 

Many were amazed to see the Terps, 
3-point underdogs, hold control of the 

Georgetown, with considerable height 
advantage, didn't even control the 
boards as expected. Maryland's Braw- 
ley, Koffenberger, Manis, Moran, John- 
son and Connelly assumed charge of 
that. They were the only Terps in 
harness until only two minutes were 
left in the game. The bulk of Mary- 
land's points were made by Moran 19, 
Brawley 16, and Koffenberger 12. 

The Terps fought for every ball and 
dazzled their opponents with a sizzling 

The Hoyas assumed an 11-6 lead but 
Moran, Koffenberger and Brawley com- 
bined to retaliate for eight straight 
points and a 14-11 lead. It was Mary- 
land 17, Georgetown 14 at the half. 

The Terps outscored the Hoyas on 
the floor by only one goal, but threw 
in 22 of 31 fouls, while the Hoyas made 
13 of 22. 

Gobblers 66; Terps 57 

Virginia Tech, football's '50 whip- 
ping boy, occupies a somewhat more 
dignified position in basketball. They 
stretched it to a five game winning 
streak by clipping Maryland 66-57, the 
Terps' first loss at home in six games. 

Coach Bud Millikan's Terps took an 
early seven-point lead. 

Tech worked up a two-point lead at 
halftime, however. 

The Gobblers have one of the best 
big men in the conference in hook-shot 
artist Tex Tilson, another in a long 
line of Tex Tilsons who have played 
for Virginia colleges. 

Maryland matched Tech in field 
jjoals, but they didn't have the fight 
they had shown in previous games. 
Brawley was high with 14 points, al- 
though he didn't have much on new- 
comers Johnson and Moran. 


Terps 56; Tarheels :>:> 

A few seconds remained in an extra 
period game, when Lee Brawley tossed 
one to register victory over North 
Carolina at Ritchie Coliseum, 56-55. 
The «ame had ended, 49-49. In the 
extra five-minute period, the Terps out- 
scored the Tarheels, 7-5. 

Brawley made 12 for 12 foul tosses 
for a perfect evening, add his tour 
floor goals to give him scoring hon- 
ors with 20. 

Dick Koffenberger, second high-point 
man, with 16, tossed two fast ones to 
erase a four-point lead and send the 
game into the extra session. 

He made his final tally of the game 
with 35 seconds left and the toss was 
his sixth from the floor. He made four 
for five from the foul line. 

The lead changed hands four times 
in the extra period. With a little less 
than a minute left, Charlie Thorne, 
Carolina's forward, knotted the ball 
game, 54-all with a heave from out 
near center court. 

The Terps made good 24 of the 30 
free tosses offered. Carolina got 17 
of 29. 

It was a rough contest in which 50 
fouls were called by the officials. 

Six players were expelled from the 
contest via the five-foul rule, three 
from each team. 

Tigers 50; Terps 44 

Clemson defeated Maryland, 50 to 44 
at Clemson in a game that never saw 
a wider margin than 10 points. The 
Tigers led all the way after overtaking 
the Terps in the first half. 

Clemson's Haugk and Maryland's 
Brawley tied for scoring honors with 
' 19 points each. 

Maryland jumped ahead at the start 
and led until five minutes to go, mak- 
ing the score 19-18 in favor of Clem- 
son. Clemson never lost the lead again. 

Clemson was ahead, 29-21, at the 

Gamecocks 70; Terps 43 

South Carolina started fast and stay- 
ed well ahead to defeat Maryland 70-43 
at Columbia. 

The Gamecocks ran up 15 points in 
the first half before Moran sank the 
first basket for the Terps. 

Brawley was high man for the Terps 
with 12 points, eight of them coming 
in the second half when he was 
switched to center. 

Terps 57; Wildcats 55 

Bob Moran's long shot just as the 
final horn was sounding gave Mary- 
land's Terps a 57-55 overtime victory 
over Davidson. 

Trailing by 35-21 in the first half, 
the Terps made a strong comeback 
while Davidson was missing shot after 
shot, and the Terps tied the game, 46- 
46, with five minutes to go. 

Maryland forged into a 53-48 lead 
with but two minutes remaining. David- 
son bounced back to tie 53-53. 

The Wildcats then went into a 55-5c 
lead. With one minute remaining in the 
overtime, Koffenberger tossed the tie- 
ing marker, and Moran sealed the ver- 
dict as the horn blew.

Maryland Aids in Efforts to 

Introduce Safety Measures 

By Milton S. Martin 

mm jmsm ARYLAND'S influence 
^B^J^OP is clearly shown in the 
MteM^S! Di trid of Columbia 
P^W^rJEi Boxing- Commission's 
!IBj i |l/ (f Ul9 experiments with a 
lulllf Ba lightweight head har- 
ness for professional 
boxing, trail blazer in a 
national campaign by the National Box- 
ing Association. The objective is to de- 
termine whether the headpiece will 
stand the rugged action at the pro 
level in the same manner it has, for 
two years, given perfect results in col- 
lege rings, eliminating injuries without 
detracting from the color and action of 
a boxing contest. 

In its first all out full scale ring test 
at the pro level in Washington the har- 
ness proved that it does not detract 
from a bout and that it has no ill effect 
at the box office, indeed many fans 
came to see the innovation. There were 
three knockouts on a card of sensa- 
tionally fast action. However, it was 
indicated that the head protector needs 
some improvements before being accep- 
table for pro rings. In three bouts the 
harness had to be adjusted as it had 
slipped down slightly over one eye. 

"It didn't bother me," commented 
Contestant Gene Smith, knockout win- 
ner and show stealer, "but after seven 
rounds of fast going it got awfully hot 
in there and my head got so sweaty I 
felt the protector might slip around 
and get me into trouble." 

It was also noted that the head 
straps, when wet from perspiration, are 
inclined to "give," causing slippage. 
The two conditions referred to are not 
encountered over the shorter collegiate 
distance. Experiments will continue 
from time to time as corrections are 
made in the head piece. 

Opposition to the use of the harness 
was generally registered by boxers and 
managers. The Commission is inclined 
to attribute the boxers' varied and 
rather nebulous causes for objection to 
the fact that it hides their identity. 
This is a characteristic generally rec- 
ognized at all sports levels. Some call 
it "pride of profession," others tab it 
as "justifiable vanity," existing in most 
good athletes and generally rated as an 
essential ingredient in the making of 
an athletic star. 

Collegiate procedure is to remove the 
harness quickly after termination of a 
bout "so the audience can see the ath- 
lete." Football answers the same situa- 
tion with large numerals that never 
change and thus become part of the 
individual player. A few years ago. 
when such practice was permissable, 
many a ball carrier tossed his helmet 
overboard for the same reason. Tough

Lightweight harness is here worn by Andy 
Ouattrocchi. captain of the University of Mary- 
land boxing team. Supervising is Coach Heinie 

on the hero worshippers when they can- 
not identify the hero and, we repeat, 
that is as it should be. However, here 
is a move to prevent serious injury and 
possible death for the hero. Isn't it 
worth the difference? 

Ringside was Dan Golomb, of the 
Everlast sports goods firm, with, "I 
learned more about head protection and 
head harnesses tonight than I did in 
two whole years of factory and labora- 
tory experiments." That reaction would 
seem to indicate that the tests are well 
worth while. Fulton's Clermont had 
bugs too. 

Approval of the head harness, about 
2 to 1, came from folks who do not 
regularly follow boxing, many of the in- 
dorsements coming from a distance, by 

Professional boxing in most states 
lauds the compulsory 8 second count, 
borrowed from NCAA rules. 

Since the first use of the light head 
harness in college rings, introduced by 
DeWitt Portal, coach of San Jose State 
College, accepted unanimously at the 
'48 meeting of collegiate coaches and 
used first in this area in a Maryland- 
Georgetown meet on February 5, 1949, 
there have been no fatalities, no major 
injuries and no lacerated eyes. 

"Will Helmets End Deaths in Box- 
ing?" asks "Pathfinder News Maga- 
zine" in an editorial which reads: 

"While Americans seem callously in- 
different to the tragic slaughter on the 
highways (some 35,000 deaths in 1950), 
sports fans have been aroused to action 
by the death of a pugilist. 

"In New York where Lavern Roach 
died after a bout a year ago, death 
struck again. Sonny Boy West, 21, 
sixth-ranking lightweight, who was 
floored in the seventh round by Percy 
Bassett, died of a brain injury. 

"It was the third death in supervised 
U. S. boxing for L950, compared with 

1) in 194!). This time, there was hope 
that something' would he done about it. 

"The National Boxing Association 
called a meeting to discuss general use 
of the headgear. Said Maryland coach 
Col. Harvey L. Miller, as Terp Captain 
Andy Quattrocchi posed for a foto illus- 
trating the equipment, 'The rubber pad 
on the back of the head woidd cushion 
contact with the floor on knockdowns.' 

"To objections that headgear would 
be 'sissified,' Miller pointed out that 
the same cry was raised when football 
helmets were introduced — and that no- 
body would think of abandoning them 
now and that the same reaction fol- 
lowed the initial use of gloves by John 
L. Sullivan and James J. Corbett. 

"There is nothing- sissy," said Miller, 
"about trying to popularize a sport by 
making it safer." 

Terps 5; Leathernecks 3 

Maryland's boxing team opened the 
1951 season with an impressive 5 to 3 
win over the Quantico Marines, Dis- 
trict Golden Gloves-A.A.U. champions. 
Three District champs, one of them a 
National title holder, were included in 
the Leatherneck line-up. 

Jack Letzer, determined Terp 125 
pounder, made an aggressive battle of 
it and carried too many guns for Larry 
Altkoefer, of the Marines. The latter 
was game but the stocky little Terp 
wouldn't be denied. 

Captain Andy Quattrocchi did a 
neat boxing job in taking an easy de- 
cision from Quantico's Larry Craig- 
head at 130. The College Park Thun- 
derbolt did not turn on the heat against 
Craighead, apparently not wishing to 
punish his less experienced opponent. 

Jack Letzer 

Barney Lincoln 

Maryland's Paul Kostopoulos, 135, 
turned in a great performance to de- 
feat classy Frankie Rawlings. The lat- 
ter, a beautiful boxer with a sizzling- 
left hook, outboxed Kosty in the open- 
er. In the second and third, however, 
the Terp had the Marine figured out, 
scoring knockdowns on four occasions 
with a straight right hand inside of 
the left hook. 

At 145 the Terps' Barney Lincoln 
won a close decision from Al Siciliano, 
neat boxer from Quantico. It was nip 
and tuck all the way, with the Terp 
landing the cleaner and harder punches. 

Paul Oliver, at 155, put up a whale 
of a show to lose a close one to the 
Corps' Mario De Santis, District Gol- 
den Gloves champ. It was a smashing 
bout featured by hard hitting, one of 
those that could have gone either way.

Don Oliver, 165, can box better than 
he did against the Marines' Walter Sti- 
panovich. The latter won. It was 
close, with the Marine doing the neater 
boxing. Oliver's wildness contributed 
to the very close decision in favor of 
the District champion. 

Maryland's Cal Quenstedt, former 
Charlotte Hall ringman, made an out- 
standing varsity debut in a nip and 
tuck bout against Eldredge Thompson, 
Marines' national AAU champion and 
District Golden Gloves title holder. 
They don't come along much tougher 
than Thompson. Quenstedt was rated 
by experts as having as much chance 
against Thompson as Whistler's father 
would of appearing on a postage stamp. 
Thompson won, barely. 

The Marines forfeited the unlimited 
bout to Maryland's Georgie Fuller. The 
referee was Vic J. De Filippo, Director 
of Physical Education at Seton Hall 

Terps 4%; LSU 3V 2 

Maryland broke the 18 match win- 
ning streak of Louisiana State, 4 1 / 2 to 
SV2. The Bayou Tigers hadn't lost a 
meet since the Terps set them back in 

Jim Owen's three time Sugar Bowl 
champs (this year they took Idaho's 
national champs in the Sugar Bowl), 
three time Southern champs and former 
National title holders, put up a hor- 
rific battle and also got the break in 
one decision before bowing out to 
Heinie Miller's smart and highly con- 
ditioned crew. Publicity releases state 
L.S.U. "is the best team in college box- 
ing" (or should that read "was"?) 

The show stealer was Maryland's 
captain, dynamic Andy Quattrocchi, 
making his debut as a 135 pounder. 
After losing the first round to lanky 
jabbing Cal Clary, the Sandman got 
the range in the second inning. A bur- 
rowing right to the midsection set the 
scenery for whistling left and rights to 
the head. It was sunset on the Delta. 

Jackie Letzer, Terp 125 pounder, 
spotted weight, height and reach to 
L.S.U. 's Bob Roller, a very good ring- 
man, to take the Tiger by decision in 
all three rounds. Barring a few fresh- 
man skirmishes last year this was Let- 
zer's second trip up those little white 

Dave Schafer, game and willing 
emergency entry at 130, came up off 
of the floor after a smashing knock- 
down to lose the nod to L.S.U.'s hard 
punching Bob Jackson. 

Paul Kostopoulos, his first bout at 
145, proved too strong and aggressive 
for L.S.U.'s Danny Orzak, the Terp 

winning after taking two of the three 
rounds against the former Texas ama- 
teur champion. 

The only "debatable" decision of the 
show' came in the 155 bracket when 
Gordon Peresich, L.S.U., gained a draw 
decision in his bout with Paul Oliver. 
The Terp dropped the second round 
but the first and third were his. The 
crowd booed this one loud and long. 

Brother Don quickly avenged the 
House of Oliver by turning L.S.U.'s 
Harry House every which way but loose 
in the 165 pound class. Don switched 
from straight boxing to his own as- 
sortment of Oliver twists and back 
again to boxing. Those tactics took all 
three innings. 

At 175 up and coming Cal Quinstedt 
dropped a very close one to L.S.U.'s Jack 
Dyer, who turned in an excellent per- 

L.S.U.'s Evans Howell, big and 
rangy, counterpunched his way to a 
win over Maryland's scrappy Georgie 
Fuller. The chunky Terp insisted on

leading the battle all the way to 

Vince Bradford, Lynchburg, Va.. 
refereed. He did a fine job in what is 
not the easiest spot in sports. 

Some followers of college sports will 
tell you college boxing is on the way 
out. The SRO crowd for L.S.U. -Mary- 
land belied that prediction. In spite of 
icy roads and vicious weather carloads 
of fans drove from as far away as 
Cumberland and Philadelphia to fill 
Ritchie Coliseum, although the student 
body was absent 'tween semesters. 

It was quite properly pointed out 
that L.S.U.'s team was not at its best 
due to railroad delays on the way 
North. However, no mention was made 
of the fact that Maryland's coach gra- 
ciously suggested that the Terps 
waive weight-making for L.S.U as a 
sporting gesture in a situation that was 
no fault of the Terps. In all but the 
145 pound class L.S.U. enjoyed weight 

Terps fans also point out that, as in 
the Marine Corps match this year and 
the Citadel and South Carolina meets 
last year, the debatable decisions went 
to the visitors. That's healthy and will 
not harm college boxing. It calls for 
referees with a little guts to call 'em 
as they see 'em regardless of crowd re- 
action. These 8 to and 7% to % 
businesses against the visitors are hard 
to defend or justify. 

Terps 5; Bulldogs 3 

Coach Heinie Miller's truculent 
Terps took part in a rousing and 


crowd pleasing show at Charleston to 
trim Matty Mathews' fighting squad, 
5 to 3. 

Many sitting in on the show thought 
it should have been <i to 2, figuring 
the one that went to the Mattymen in 
the unlimited division should have none 
to Maryland's Georgie Puller instead 
of to Citadel's Bill Baldwin. Fuller 
dropped the first inning to the Citadel 
SOUthpaw but more than held his own 
in the second and had it his way in the 
third. Well, those things happen. 

Cal Quenstedt, Maryland, 175, run- 
ning- behind in his bout with Bill John- 
son, found the range in round two, 
dropping the cadet just as the bell 
rang- ending the second. In the third. 
Quenstedt continued the motion and 
caught up with Johnson with a double 
left hook to the stomach and jaw. It 
was a clean kayo. 

Don Oliver, Maryland, 165, carried 

entirely too many batteries that fired 
from all angles to lower the colors of 

Cal Quenstedt 

Geo. Fuller 

game Jim Gallagher. Oliver just knew 
too much boxing for Jim. 

Paul Oliver, Terp 155 pounder, hand- 
ed out a big league boxing- lesson to 
George Campsen to take all three 

Paul Kostopoulos, Maryland 145er, 
put up his usual rugged and aggressive 
scrap to take the measure of Hugh 
Cotton, a gamester who never stopped 
trying. Kosty had all three rounds. 

Andy Quattrocchi, Terp 135 pound 
team captain, had too much class and 
hitting power for Vince Billingsley. 
The latter was in there to stay and, 
after Andy had caught up with him 
to drop him four times during tin 
fray, he coasted in to a decision. The 
crowd cheered "the Q" for this one be 
cause he did not smash into Vince 

Davey Schafer, 130 pound Terp, not 
yet in the shape enjoyed by his team 
mates, made a fine stand of it against 
Billy McKay. It was very close at 
that and there have been worse draws 

Jackie Letzer, up and coming Terp 
125 pounder, also dropped one by a 
cat's whisker to rugged and deter 
mined Herbie Wilcox. This was an- 
other that could have gone either way. 

Vince Bradford, of Lynchburg, ref- 

There was considerable buzzing after 
the meet lauding the show as one to 
remember, an opinion shared by both 
teams, officials, cadets, visitors, Kukla.

krousemen Win 4, Lose 2, 

By Brent Loban 

ARYLAND'S wrest- 
lers, under Coach

Colonel Griswold's Shooting 

Terps Bust Bullseye Records 

To Take Army and M. I. T. 

ARYLAND shooters who 
hold United States col- 
legiate champion ship 
honors, won a small 
bore rifle meet with a 
1,440 total. Massachu- 
setts Institute of Tech- 
nology scored 1,432 and 
Army 1,424, scores good enough to win 
in any ordinary match. 

High point man was Charley Mac- 
Donald of M.I.T. with 292 out of a pos- 
sible 300. James Maxwell banged 
away for a 291 total for the Terps and 
Army's Bill Edler scored 290. 

Besides Maxwell, Maryland's win- 
ning team was composed of Mouser 
289, Kelley 289, Oster 286 and Zuras 

Coach Col. Harland Griswold said, 
"To the best of my knowledge the 1424 
we shot in a National Rifle Association 
registered tournament last year was 
the high mark until today. We received 
a statement from the NRA certifying 
the 1424 mark as a record and I have 
heard of no better marks since then." 
Griswold admits his squad was "hot" 
but at the same time he wonders what 
the total would have been had he not 
lost Arthur Cook and James Wells, his 
No. 1 and No. 2 men. 

Cook, former National and Olympic 
small bore champion, is scheduled to 
enter the Air Forces with a commission 
next month, while Wells is expected to 
leave to enter the service. Rather than 
fire a few matches and lose a whole 
year of eligibility, both boys decided to 
forego this season. 

Two a Day 

Maryland took two triangular meets 
at College Park in one daw 

The Terps won a morning match 
with a 1427 score as Capt. Bob Jordan, 
team captain, led the way with a 289x

with a 1394 total, followed by VMI's

The relay team was composed of Gus 
Meier, Bob Browning, Al Buehler and 
Tyson Creamer. 

Coach Jim Kehoe may well be proud 
of the Terps' performance. Creamer 
ran an excellent race. The Colgate 
anchor man had six yards on him at 
the beginning of the anchor leg and 
Creamer's finish drive closed the gap 
all but a couple of feet. 

In "The Sleepy City" 

Official bumbling at the finish line 
of the Philadelphia Inquirer track meet 
made it necessary for Tyson Creamer, 
Maryland's fine distance runner, to 
breast the tape twice before winning 
the 1000-yard handicap run. 

Through a mistake the tape was put 
up with one lap still to go. Creamer 
hit the tape first, then slackened his 
pace only to hear the gun sound to offi- 
cially indicate the start of the final lap. 

Creamer regained his stride, lost the 
lead, came back on the last turn and 
overtook Earl Foster, N. Y. Pioneer 
Club, to win the race in 2:14.7. Creamer 
had a 15-yard handicap against a five-

Honors for Bobby Ward 
Tommy Mont Returns 

A R Y L A N D alumni 
held one of the most 
successful dinner par- 
ties of the winter sea- 
son in Baltimore at 
the Sheraton - Belve- 
dere Hotel. The af- 
fair, the second meet- 
ing of the season of the Baltimore 
Club of the University of Maryland 
Alumni, was a testimonal dinner for 
the University of Maryland's first "All 
American" football star, Bobby Ward. 
Over 300 members and guests attended. 
Dr. Albert E. Goldstein, President of 
the Baltimore Club, welcomed the 
guests and introduced Judge William 
P. Cole, Jr., who served as Toastmaster. 
Dr. Ray Ehrensberger, the speaker of 
the evening, discussed "U. of Md. at 
Home and Abroad," in a most enlight- 
ening manner. After which, a short 
film, "Bobby Ward in Action," was 
shown by Athletic Director, Jim Ta- 
tum, who coached the "All American." 
A beautiful trophy was then pre- 
sented to Bobby Ward by the Balti- 
more Club. 

Among the distinguished guests of 
the evening were Deans of all the Col- 
leges of Baltimore and College Park 
and Baltimore's outstanding high 
school football stars accompanied by 
their coaches. 

The banquet committee, headed by 
Chester W. Tawney, Chairman, was 
composed of Dr. Arthur I. Bell, Dr. 
Albert E. Goldstein, James O. Proctor, 
and Miss Beatrice Jarrett.

Cheek Joins Staff 

Emmett Cheek, who played for Jim 
Tatum at North Carolina in 1942, has 
been added to the coaching staff. 

He has been coaching at Guilford 
College and replaces Flucie Stewart 
who resigned recently. Cheek, 27, is 
a native of Chapel Hill. 

Cheek also played baseball for North 
Carolina and later in the minor 

" and Mont" 

Tommy Mont, 147, three-letter star, 
has been named assistant football 
coach, announced Jim Tatum. 

Mont played four years of football, 
basketball and lacrosse. He served 
overseas as Captain in World War II. 



Bill Meek (pictured above), back- 
field coach at the University of Mary- 
land, has been named head football 
coach at Kansas State College. 

Meek, who coached a Fort Benning 
team to the national service champion- 
ship in 1946, came to Maryland with 
Head Coach Jim Tatum in 1947 and 
was the last member of the original 
staff Tatum brought to Maryland. 

Until last season, Meek was used as 
freshman coach and scout. Last year, 
he served as varsity backfield. 

Meek played in the 1941 and 1943 
Tennessee Sugar Bowl games. He will 
use the Split-T formation at Kansas 

"I was really fortunate to get split-T 
training under Jim Tatum at Mary- 
land," said Meek, adding, "I consider 
the Kansas State head football coach- 
ing job as a great opportunity and a 
great challenge." 

Kansas State authorities described 
Meek as "just the kind of coach we've 
been seeking — a successful young 
coach on the way up." 

Coach Jim Tatum said he was "very 
happy" to see Meek get the job. 

"I think Bill has all the prospects of 
making a topflight head coach," Tatum 
said. "We are sorry to see him leave 
here but wish him and Kansas State 
all the luck in the world." 

Tatum said he didn't know who 
would replace Meek at Maryland but 
indicated he would try to hire a for- 
mer Oklahoma University quarterback 
who is familiar with the Split-T sys- 
tem Maryland uses. 

Since 1947, when Tatum moved from 
Oklahoma to Maryland, three of his 
assistants, including Meek, have be- 
come head coaches. The others are 
Bud Wilkinson, Tatum's line coach, 
who succeeded him at Oklahoma, and 
George Barclay, Maryland line coach, 
who became head coach at Washington 
& Lee. 

Football Leadership 
Coach Jim Tatum's Terrapins lead 
the nation in two departments of foot- 
ball, according to Associated Press sta- 

Maryland ran back more punts than 
any other team — 55 — and ran them fat 
ther than any other team — 771 yards. 

Maryland led in interception return 
yardage just as it did in the total 
distance of its punt returns. The Terps 
raced back 408 yards on their 24 inter- 
ceptions. Kentucky ran 27 hack for 
:!S7 yards. 


Three Maryland players — End Elmer Wingate. 
Tackle Ray Krouse and Halfback Johnny 

Idzik (pictured above) — were outstanding: on 
defense for the South in the Shrine's annual 
North vs. South football classic in Miami. 
Krouse and Wing-ate combined to stop many 
of the Yankees' running* plays, while Idzik made 
the pass interception, just before the final whis- 
tle, that killed off the last hopes of the North 
and gave the South All Stars a 14-to-9 victory 
over the North. 

The last-minute touchdown climaxed the fin- 
est display of clean, hard, precision football wit- 
nessed by Miami fans in a decade. Few of the 
39,132 fans left the stadium until the final gun 
was sounded. 

The South, coached by Andy Gustafson of 
Miami and Bobby Dodd of Georgia Tech. was 
forced to come from behind to turn back the 
"Yankees" coached by Yale's Herman Hickman

pointed at him only, because he was 
an athlete. 

On the other hand pro boxing has 
been very proud of the fact that all 
eight of the wartime world champions, 
Joe Louis, Gus Lesnevich, Tony Zale, 
Freddie Cochrane, Ike Williams, Willie 
Pep, Manuel Ortiz and Jackie Patter- 
son served in uniform. 

Such football stars as Paul Governale 
of Columbia, Reds Daly and Al Blozis 
of Georgetown and many others gave 
their lives in combat. After Saipan, a 
Marine general remarked, "We lost 
enough ail-American quarterbacks to 
fill the Rose Bowl lineups." 

The assignment of athletes in World 
War II was no new item. In World 
War I the West Coast had big leaguer 
Duffy Lewis, who was a chief petty 
officer as soon as he enlisted, heading a 
group that played ball during the 
whole war. Jeff Pfeffer had the same 
sort of team on the East Coast. 

On the other hand, out of the 
trenches of France strode Catcher 
Hank Gowdy, and world's boxing 
champions Mike O'Dowd and Joe Lynch, 
while world's boxing champion Harry 
Greb served under Admiral Rodman in 
the Grand Fleet, as did baseball star 
Rabbit Maranville. 

Colonel Frank Goettge, who gave his 
life on Guadalcanal, one of the greatest 
of all-time football players, had also 
served as a youngster in World War I. 
He once said, "I'd have been a pretty 
good ball player if I hadn't gotten 
those trench feet." 

Barney Ross, retired, grayhaired 
boxer who could have been a post box- 
ing instructor, was decorated after 
having proven at one of Guadalcanal's 
disputed barricades that, with 29 of the 
enemy piled up before him, and with a 
pale moon for overhead lights, he was 
still champion of the world. 

The world knows the story of Ser- 
jeant Al Schmidt, Pennsylvania Ma- 
rine hero. He came out of Guadalcanal 
totally blind. But his pal, shoulder to 
shoulder that night, did not come out 
at all. He was Indian Joe Rivers, Phila- 
delphia lightweight boxer. The same 
tampaign took the lives of Blondy Ed- 
wards and Terry Reynolds, San Fran- 
cisco and Philadelphia lightweights, re- 

Many a red hot war hero would not 
have been in uniform at all if the selec- 
tive service law hadn't tapped him for 
the honor. On the other hand, there 
were whole units, like Washington's 
Fifth Marine Reserve battalion, that 
never owned a draft card, and some of 
this outfit's members had no draft 
card for World War I or World War II. 
For World War II they were on duty 
13 months before Pearl Harbor. 

"It takes all kinds of soldiers to 
make up an Army," is an oft-proven 
axiom and it would seem that star ath- 

letes rate no more special consideration 
than Joe Doakes, the guy next door. 
Reaction among professional service- 
men is pretty general to the effect that 
athletes as well as non-athletes should 
be graded, that those with slight dis- 
abilities should be assigned to jobs for 
the performance of which they are pro- 
fessionally qualified. 

I recall a grade-A telegraph operator 
in uniform who did a fine job in World 
War I. He had only one leg. At Camp 
LeJeune we had a medal of honor chief 
warrant officer who saw it through with 
only one arm. Fellows with complete 
dentures made it out of here and over- 
seas, and also fellows well over 50 
years of age wound up in the Pacific. 
Many have found that, if they want to 
emulate Putnam who left his plow in 
the field back in Revolutionary days, 
there are still ways and means of get- 
ting in. Then too, you have the Ben- 
nett Meyers types, who were generals 
in no time and wound up in the Bastille. 

"It takes all kinds of soldiers to 
make an Army," and the way to make 
a good one is to get into harness and 
then to carry out the job assigned you. 

The good ones did just that whether 
or not they were athletes. 


From Tokyo, Japan came a welcome 
Christmas greetings signed "Rosey." 
That name is sufficient to remind many 
of pre-war days when George F. "Ro- 
sey" Pollack was Secretary of the 
Alumni Association. After extensive 
service in the Pacific Rosey took on a 
civilian job in Japan and has remained 
there since that time. All of his many 
alumni friends return his greeting and 
wish for him a fine New Year. Rosey 
says, "Clif Byrd is out here; Ray and 
Claire Grelecki are returning to the 
U. S.; Helen Marshall is here, as are 
George Barnes and Earl Widmyer. Mr. 
and Mrs. Newgardner are also here. 
We have had a get-together."

among the states in "E" Bond sales 
according to James O. V. Hall, deputy 
director of the United States Savings 
Bonds Division of the Treasury De- 
partment. The Free State was ex- 
ceeded only by Pennsylvania, New Jer- 
sey and Nevada for the 10-month 
period of 1950, compared to "E" Bond 
sales for the same period in 1949. 

The total sales in Maryland for the 
10-month period in 1950 were $33,920,- 
249 — this is slightly lower than last 
year's "E" sales of $35,062,000 for the 
year's "E" sales of $35,062,000.

America's destiny rides on her ability to produce. Day and night, 
the telephone helps our factories get out the goods and the guns. In 
many other ways it helps to safeguard the country and its people. 

Civilian Defense. The telephone 
is an essential link in national, state 
and local defense. One of the Bell 
System's most important current 
undertakings is the installation of 
telephone facilities for a Radar Net- 
work rimming the country. 

Meeting Military Needs. Thou- 
sands of miles of private line net- 
works have already been provided 
for military needs. Long Distance 
as well as local telephone facilities 

are also being built and installed 
in record time for military bases 
and training camps all over the 

Arms and Radar Leader. The 

Nation's largest producer of gun di- 
rectors, radar equipment, radio and 
telephones for military use during 
the last war was the Western Elec- 
tric Company, manufacturing and 
supply unit of the Bell Svstem. 
Western Electric and Bell Labora- 

tories completed over 1200 military 
projects. They are again working 
on special defense assignments. 

Value of Growth. Times of na- 
tional emergency emphasize the 
value of a nationwide telephone 
svstem big enough and good enough 
to meet the needs of its people, its 
armed forces, and its industries. 

Whatever the job, you can de- 
pend on the telephone and on tele- 
phone people to help get it clone.

IN a news story from Pittsburgh, 
on the subject of selective service 
deferment and service assignment of 
athletes, Branch Rickey, of the Pitts- 
burgh Pirates National League Base- 
ball Team was credited with saying 
that American colleges no longer em- 
phasize the teaching of American His- 

Mr. Rickey should have excepted the 
University of Maryland, where, be- 
cause the University feels that it is 
vital for every student to understand 
this country better, a very compre- 
hensive program of American studies 
is conducted. 

Work in American Civilization is of- 
fered at three distinct academic levels. 
The first level is required of all fresh- 
men or sophomores. The second level is 
for undergraduate students wishing to 
carry a major in this field. The third 
level is for students desiring to do 
graduate work in this field. All courses, 
of which students are required to take 
six semester hours, are planned as 
parts of a whole that is designed to ac- 
quaint students with the basic facts 
of American history, with the funda- 
mental patterns of our social, eco- 
nomic, political, and intellectual de- 
velopment, and with the richest of our 
cultural heritage. 

"This program," said Dr. H. C. Byrd, 
President of the University, "is intend- 
ed to emphasize in these forums the 
fundamental differences between the 
American way of life and social re- 
forms that have taken place in other 
countries. It is intended to present 
all the many factors that have devel- 
oped for the American people the best 
living conditions that exist for any 
people in the world. 

"The ultimate objective is to do an 
effective job in Maryland, and to form 
a pattern that other States may fol- 
low, which, in a little while," Dr. Byrd 
concluded, "should make the American

people as a whole more conscious and 
more appreciative of the great advant- 
ages that the American way of life has 
given to them." 

In the Boston Herald, Bill Cunning- 
ham, one of the top-drawer columnists, 
wrote about Remington, the former 
Dartmouth and ex-Commerce Depart- 
ment official who denied he was a 

Cunningham posed this question: 

"What are we using for education 
in this country?" 

That brought him around to conclud- 

"I was going to ask what we've been 
using for education. But space has 
fled, and I'll simply say if you're look- 
ing for a good place to have your chil- 
dren given a sane, well-balanced and 
thoroughly American education write 
for the catalogue of the University of 

"A full course in the history, the 
ideals, the problems, accomplishments, 
responsibilities and hopes of the' 
United States of America is now a re- 
quirement for a degree in that excel- 
lent institution. Education of that sort 
would have saved cases of this sort, 
and all the damage such individuals 
have deliberately, or inadvertently, 
done us." 

(See General Ogden's story on page 5) 


In answer to the question, "Who is 
there?", Dr. T. M. Pearce, a Univer- 
sity of New Mexico professor, says 
with the greatest confidence, "It is 

Streamlining and liberalizing our 
spoken language still further, Dr. 
Pearce eliminates the objective pro- 
noun "whom." Thus it should be cor- 
rect to say, "Who do you want?" 

Other expressions that have come up 
from the common man and not down 
from the educated are "Drive slow," 
"None are here," and "I don't care if 
the sun don't shine." 

"English teachers are behind their 
time teaching textbook grammar when 
they should work for a standard nearer 
the common speech of the everyday 
man," Dr. Pearce went on to say. 

When Winston Churchill said "It is 
me," in a speech he delivered in 1945. 
he was widely criticized, but what 
spokesman is more widely recognized 
as an exemplar of speech in the Eng- 
lish spoken world?" Dr. Pearce con- 

This sort of confounds the old gag 
about the two Harvard roommates. 
Came a bang on the door accompanied 
by a raucous, "Open up. It's me." The 
one Harvard man turned to the other 
with the question, "What is the fellow 
trying to say?" 

However, it supports the professor 
from Syracuse who, on a TV show, 
said, "Language is the art of trans- 
mitting a message from one to an- 
other. If it accomplishes that pur- 
pose it is good language and has ful- 
filled its mission. If Dizzy Dean, with 
the words, 'He slxd into second', con- 
veys his message correctly to the lis- 
tener, that's good language."

l-'ossibly Joe Jacobs' "I should have

New words join the dictionary each 
year, put there by common usage. 
Time was when if you failed to use the 
plural "hippopotomi" and "campii" you 
were headed for the black list of lan- 
guage's Emily Posts. 

"Flak" got into the Funk-Wagnalls 
league during World War II. The word 
is composed of the initials of the Ger- 
man "Fliegen abschuss kanonenfeuer," 
or "anti-aircraft fire." 

There's the Navy story of a sea-going 
whiz-kid who made it a point to cor- 
rect others, but wound up behind the 
eight ball as a result. He had witnessed 
a fist fight and was being questioned 
by the ship's captain with, "You say 
Jones and Smith were seated when 
Smith struck Jones; whereupon Jones 
stood up." "No, Captain," said the 
correct sailor, with a gesture of utter 
futility, I said, "Jones stood. When a 
man stands he naturally stands UP!" 
"Oh, he does? Does he?", roared the 
skipper, adding, "five days in the brig 
for insolence. The next case, Mr. 
Murphy. The prisoner will stand 
DOWN!" Any graduate of our School 
of Law will tell you the skipper was 

If good language means only the 
ability to make a listener understand 
the speaker's meaning, possibly double 
talk, called "swerve" in Boston, might 
also get the green light. But swerve is 
a sort of a code language, made up of 
syllables. Only accomplished "swerv- 
ers" can understand each other, while 
they leave casual listeners totally be- 
fuddled out in left field without a glove. 
A good example of "swerve" was de- 
livered at Annapolis some years ago. 
Navy played Boston College. A poor 
but honest Navy file simply had to 
leave the stands for a few minutes. 
Returning to catch up on the plays he 
had missed he asked the beezark next 
to him for a resume. The fellow was 
from Boston and he unbent as follows: 

"While you were out brenerizing the 
quaddis, Navy staged a murvent sprat- 
tis that bondrave toward the Boston 
conmartis. The play was the old spe- 
min of the rossent with the rieberstoff 
lagpaining the stramfin. It looked as 
though it might ferbit the spauldins 
and actually omitrad. However, Bos- 
ton's halfback codesperled the framson 
away from the escotart, working the 
old drillspain toward the mercanthal. 
That resperved the quobots who 
smashed all the way back to the apper- 
love with the beelmite set for the 
grontlaub. But the fobanbren was not 
so easy to ermot, the spemin out- 
guessing the rossnot. The whole cole- 
mer galtigated. This could have been 
dismarted if we had fendered the 
eitaba and gwelged them, being ful- 
care not to dromp their twoggets. We 
could have wampfed to fwengle their 
mimblingers. That would have spoffled 
their twetchels."

humbled and bewildered, "what are

Brigadier General D. A. D. Ogden. pictured 
above, pleads for "Ideal of America." 

1^_T EARLY 35 years ago, I began the 
^^| life of a professional soldier. I 
have seen two wars. Nearly 20 years 
of that time have been engaged in war 
and warlike activities. 

I have reached the time of life where 
I feel that I can look backward as well 
as forward and begin to figure out what 
it all means. It is quite clear that there 
is something more to soldiering than 
just obeying orders and getting done 
the tasks assigned you to do. 

The Ideal of America 

Through the kaleidoscopic scenes of 
history, come men who rise and fall 
and come and go, and there is a con- 
tinuous thread of something that 
makes sense — and the thread is spiri- 
tual and emotional. It is the reality and 
the other things are transitory. The 
reality I would like to call the "Ideal 
of America." 

In Dutch Guiana (Surinam) in Nov- 
vember, 1941, after the Dutch army 
had been destroyed, and the Queen and 
the fugitive Holland government 
agreed that the bauxite mines of Suri- 
nam should be defended by American 
troops, elaborate precautions were taken 
to bring these troops in with as little 
fanfare as possible, so as to avoid irri- 
tating the national pride of the Dutch 
and native population. These precautions 
proved futile and unnecessary, for the 
first contingent to be brought ashore 
found itself, despite the secrecy sur- 
rounding its arrival, marching between 
packed lines of wildly cheering resi- 
dents of the territory. The event was 
not the arrival of the troops them- 
selves, but the arrival of America, de- 
fender of free people. 

Knew We Were Coming 

Later, in June, 1945, an amphibi- 
ous unit in support of Australian 
divisions assigned for the mop-up 
of Borneo. Again, wartime security 
precluded any advance notice of

the arrival of American troops. When 
we came to the villages of the Dyaks. 
the free people of the interior, we were 
greeted with enthusiasm and cheers. 
They knew we were coming. They 
were on the banks and at the villages 
we passed. They cheered not the troops 
in the boats, but the flag of the United 
States that flew on the stern of every 
craft. The same thing made them cheer 
as made the people cheer on the streets 
of Paramaribo — the "Ideal of America 
champion of free peoples everywhere." 
These are but events, but in the 
period of an active life, men rise and 
fall. There is a difference between 
men too. Let me tell you about two 
of them to illustrate that difference. 

Death of a Coward 

The first man was not one of the 
good ones, although he had been an 
officer in World War I. He was found 
guilty of taking checks which did not 
belong to him and converting them to 
his own use. When he found what the 
consequences of that discovery were, 
he killed himself, leaving behind him, 
nothing but a painful memory and a 
wife and children destitute and dis- 

That man was a coward. He was 
a coward for taking the money in the 
first place when he knew he shouldn't. 

He was a fool for gambling with the 
future of his wife and children. 

He Had No Ideals 

He was a coward for not facing the 
consequences when he was caught. 

He had no ideals. He lived for noth- 
ing except the satisfaction of his own 
desires. Let him remain anonymous. 

Death of a Hero 

Let me tell you of another man 
whose name I am proud to give you. 
His name was Junior Van Noy. I call 
him a man although he was but 18 years 

Van Noy was a machine gunner on 
a beach at Finschhafen, New Guinea. 

Our forces and the Australians had 
just made a successful landing against 
the Japanese forces at this point al- 
though we were heavily outnumbered. 
The Japs had calculated that the best 
way to get rid of us was to make a 
counter landing against our beach 

He Did Not Withdraw 

There were other men in that heath 
position besides Van Noy — perhaps a 

dozen of them. The motors were not 
entirely silent, so that our men became 
aware that something was about to 
happen. The other men prudently with- 
drew into the jungles — or perhaps they 
went to get their rines — but Van Noy 
had been told that his gun was the 
pivot of that perimeter defense on the 
beach and that he was to hold it and he 
was going to hold it. He did not with- 

One gun against eight; one man 
against 150. 

He wiped out the contents of two 
boats but the other two effected a land- 
ing and Van Noy had to take care of 
them after they got ashore. 

The last enemy killed Van Noy with 
a grenade as he fell just 10 yards from 
the muzzle of that gun. 

There is a difference between those 
two men. One of them was a hero. 
The Congress said he was and awarded 
him the Medal of Honor. 

But what makes the difference? 
They are both dead. 

One man lived for something — he 
believed in something, and what he be- 
lieved in and what he lived for was 
more precious to him than life itself. 
It is the knowledge of the "Ideal of 
America" which will generate in our 
young men a willingness to "hold when 
all is gone except the will which says 
'hold on!' " 

It is not limited to individuals. You 
will also find it in organizations. 

"More Men Like Van Noy" 

I recall a very gallant division with 
which I served frequently throughout 
the southwest Pacific campaigns. It 
was the first to fight at Buna in the 
summer of 1942. It fought all through 
campaigns for the next three y 
spending t>2() days — almost two years 
— in battle. It suffered grievous losses. 
I accompanied it to the occupation of 
Japan and assisted in demobilizing it 
in January 1946. It was still at the 
same strength that it had when it en- 
tered the battle of Buna and it was still 
a gallant division — the equal of any 
but there was only one man in it who 
had fought in the battle of Buna. It 
was a gallant division right down to 
the very last man! 

It is the knowledge of our ideals that 
makes us bold and strong.

is ? 

1 would like to define it for you as 
I see it. 

Equal Opportunity 

In the early 1600's there came to the 
new continent of America, many 
groups of people from various parts of 
the Old World to establish a new na- 
tion. They came because they were 
dissatisfied with conditions in the Old 
World. In 177(5 these people finally 
threw off the last domination of the 
Old World and definitely established a 
new nation based upon new principles 
which are these: 

Equal opportunity for all. 

The new nation and its government 
would satisfy the normal hungers of 

The hunger for truth. You can speak 
the truth in America and you will 
never be penalized for it. You can 
write it in your newspapers and books 
and say it over the radio. There are a 
great many places in the world where 
that cannnot be done. 

The hunger for education. That 
hunger exists in every man. Education 
is free for all in this country and a 
man can have just as much of it as he 
is willing to work to get, and it is 
good education. It makes for national 
progress — shared by all. In how many 
other countries of the world today can 
you have that? 

The hunger for freedom. We want to 
be able to live our lives in our own 
way and do as we please; bring up our 
children as we choose; and worship as 
we choose. There are not many other 
countries where you can do that, and 
their number is becoming less. 

The hunger for decency. We insist 
upon decent conduct by everyone in 
this country. It is a well-established 
principle with us that the moral law 
of God is superior to that of the state. 
There is no law here that can make a 
man commit a crime. Every child is 
expected to honor his father and 
mother. That is the law of the land 
as well as the commandment of God. 
Archbishop Stepanic and Cardinal 
Mindzenty rot in prison today because 
they would not agree that the church 
would be the creature of the state, 
and I hope they are men enough to lay 
there and rot until they die rather than 
admit it! But they wouldn't have to do 
that in this country. 

The hunger for ownership. Everyone 
here who is reasonably provident, may 
own something. It may be a farm, it 
may be a home or a business, or per- 
haps just an automobile, or an air- 
plane; but the law will protect you in 
your ownership, and whr.t you own will 
not be taken from you for captious rea- 
sons. You couldn't be sure of that in 
many places today. 

Those things are the "Ideals of 
America,'' and it is what America 

means to a great many people outside 

of our borders. 

We boast of ourselves as being lov- 
ers of peace but our history has not 
been "nc of unbroken peace, I'm again 
and again we have arisen to light 
against encroachment upon these 

We have always fought for an ideal 
Sometimes the allies of one war have 
been the enemies of another, and vice 
versa, but the idea against which we 
fought was always the same. The real 
conflict has been between the ideal and 
an idea. The ideal is government "of 
the people, for the people, by the peo- 
ple." The idea is government of the 
many, by the few; the thought that 
directed power can overcome all prin- 

The Magic Face 

As long as there are evil men in the 
world, we shall probably have to fight 
to defend these principles. The faith 
that principle will triumph over force 
is the "Ideal of America." It is the 
magic force which liberates men's 
minds, survives all defeats, and pene- 
trates to the farthest corners of the 

America in the eyes of the common 
people of the world, is almost the sole 
defender of that faith. 

We have always won military vic- 
tories but we have not always achieved 
our objectives. 

We fought World War I to make the 
world safe for democracy, but we did 
not achieve it, for democratic govern- 
ment was in greater peril after victory 
than before. We failed to achieve our 
ideals because we failed to establish the 
rule of justice and enforced law. 

Because of our military weakness, 
we compromised with naked power. We 
faltered in the maintenance of our 
principles and because of that weak- 
ness, we found ourselves faced with 
World War II. 

America must be strong as well as 

We Made a Mistake 

We won World War II — a war to 
end all wars — and we didn't repeat the 
same mistake we made after World 
War I because we established a rule of 
justice and of law which was capable 
of enforcement. But — we made anoth- 
er mistake. 

How Heroes Are Made 

We failed to distinguish between the 
true and the false! — We failed to real- 
ize that one of our powerful allies was 
fighting against the very thing we were

Shall we again compromise with

shall stand alone and friendless.

Rev. Frederick Harris, chaplain of 
the Senate, spoke to students at Mary- 
land as a feature of the University's 
Religous Emphasis Week. 

Harris was introduced by Dr. H. C. 
Byrd, University president. The Men's 
Glee Club sang during the program. 

Noonday devotional services were 
held during the week. The Rev. Lloyd 
Brown, Robert Smoot and Howard Rees 
conducted one service each day. 

Faculty from the different colleges 

were assigned a day in which they had 
noonday services and addresses.

on "The Crisis and You." 

Nash has lectured at Yale, Nebraska,

contributed to "Education for Chris-

sity and the Modern World," and has 
written extensively for English and 
American journals including "The 
Spectator" and "Christian Century." 

"Only by accepting the basic prin- 
ciples of religion can we preserve the 
finest values that we have," said Dr. 
H. C. Byrd, President of the University 
of Maryland, in emphasizing the im- 
portance of "Religion Emphasis Week." 

"Faith in God is basic to real satis- 
faction," Dr. Byrd continued, "and in 
order that this faith may be observed 
and its values emphasized, I hope that 
every person on the campus of the Uni- 
versity, or connected with the Univer- 
sity, will attend as many of the relig- 
ious services as possible. I ask that 
the members of the University commu- 
nity, students, faculty, and adminis- 
trative staff support this program. 

"Personally," Dr. Byrd said, "I be- 
lieve that God's spiritual values are 
basic to success in life and to the 
achievement of any worthwhile pro- 

"We should remember that while we 
are in a time of great difficulty, out of 
such times comes opportunity," Dr. 
Byrd went on to say. "The greatest 
men since creation have developed out 
of the vicissitudes that surrounded 
them. Then, too, we should remember 
that man should labor to overcome the 
selfishness to which many of the 
world's difficulties and troubles are 

"In such times as these," Dr. Byrd 
concluded, "if men and women would 
only turn to the Source of all real 
strength, there would be more bright- 
ness, and we should have less fear."

The Honorable Malcolm R. Giles, pictured 
above. Director-General of the Loyal Order of 
Moose, will deliver the 1951 commencement ad- 
dress for the University of Maryland at College 
Park on Saturday, June 9, Dr. H. C. Byrd, Uni- 
versity President, has announced. 

Mr. Giles has been an active Moose official 
for nearly thirty-five years. He was born in 
Somerset County, Maryland, in 1894, where he 
attended high school and business college. Com- 
ing of age he joined the Loyal Order of Moose 
which had recently established Mooseheart. the 
Child City, now world-famed academic and vo- 
cational school, and headquarters of the Frat- 

When World War I was declared in 1917, Mr. 
Giles, then chief clerk in the office of the Su- 
preme Secretary, joined the army. He was in 
France for fourteen months. On his return to 
civil life, he resumed his work with the Moose 
as District Supervisor. After five years with 
the field forces, Mr. Giles was recalled to 
Mooseheart as acting Supreme Secretary. In 
1929, he was unanimously elected Supreme Sec- 
retary and served in that office for twenty 

In November, 1931, the Supreme Council ap- 
pointed Mr. Giles to the then created office of 
Comptroller, which position he held until 1939; 
however, the Convention in 1934 added greatly 
to his official duties. At that Convention the 
delegates authorized the creation of the Mem- 
bership Enrollment Department along the lines 
planned by Mr. Giles, and placed him in charge 
of its administration. The wisdom of this ac- 
tion has been proved by the continued growth 
of the Order, now approaching the million 
mark in membership. 

In August of 1945, Mr. Giles was elected to 
the newly created office of Executive Director. 
At the Convention held in San Francisco, Aug- 
ust, 1949, the delegates assembled, by unanimous 
vote, elected Mr. Giles to the office of Director- 
General, the highest office within the gift of 
the Fraternity. He is a member of the Shrine, 
Knights of Pythias, Odd Fellows, Elks, and the 
American Legion. He is also a director in the 
Aurora National Bank, Aurora, Illinois, where 
he resides.

Alumni Association. 

Our magazine is our best medium of 
telling the story of the activities of the 
University and we urge all to con- 
tinue their fine support. Each issue we 
try to bring before you the activities 
of the University and the activities of 
the Alumni. Our magazine has been 
rated as the finest college magazine 
in the United States. 

Our athletic program has been a 
great success, and last year, as you 
know Bob Ward was nominated as our 
first player to make the regular All- 
American Team. In addition to that 
we really closed out a most successful 
season and if it had not been for the 
greenness of our players working to- 
gether, the team would have been rated 
in the first five in the country. 

Our other teams are doing a fine job 
and Jim Tatum deserves our greatest 
congratulations and good wishes. 

We urge you all to take an even 
greater interest in the Alumni activi-

Mecca of Maryland Summer Vacationists is Likened to Long Island 
in Relation to New York State 

By Emma Price 

(This is the first of a series of articles deal- 
ing with the Eastern Shore. I 

THE Eastern Shore of Maryland, 
composed of nine counties, is en- 
tirely separated from the Western 
Shore by the Chesapeake Bay and 
the Susquehanna River. From the 
tip of Cecil County to the toe of Som- 
erset, the land abounds in early Amer- 
ican history, legendary lore and charm- 
ing spots for summer and winter rec- 
reation. There are new buses and ferry 
schedules for Eastern Shore travel 
round the year. 

Tilghman's and Deale's 
If the St. Lawrence River has its 
Thousand Islands, the Eastern Shore 
has two large and famous ones, Tilgh- 
man's and Deale's, with dozens of 
smaller ones, some of them uninhab- 
ited. If Venice has its many canals, 
waterways, and gondolas, the Eastern 
Shore can outmatch them. Talbot 
County alone has four hundred and 
eighty miles of waterfront, one hun- 
dred and forty square miles of water 
area. The entire Shore is full of 
tiny creeks, estuaries and natural har- 
bors. Parts of the land look out upon 
the Eastern Bay, the Chesapeake Bay, 
or the Atlantic Ocean. Sail boats, 
canoes, fishing and motor boats, with 
yachts and larger ships plying the deep- 
er waters, make a water carnival scene 
on the Eastern Shore of Maryland 
nearly all year round. 

The names of the nine counties are 
significant of our close affiliation with 
England at the time of our settlement. 

The northernmost county, Cecil, 
named after the second Lord Calvert; 
Kent, for a section of England very 
dear to the Calvert's heart; Queen 
Anne's County to honor the mother 
Queen of England at that time; Talbot 
County after Grace, daughter of 
George, first Lord Baltimore; Caroline 
County after Lady Calvert, sister of the 
last Lord Baltimore; Dorchester Coun- 
ty for another worthy Englishman, the 
Earl of Dorset, friend of the Calverts; 
Somerset County after the married sis- 
ter of Cecelius who was noted for her 
social reforms and charitable deeds in 
England; and Worcester County for 
Edward Somerset, Marquis of Dorces- 
ter, a famous inventor and nobleman. 
Only the county of Wicomico retained 
the name bestowed upon it by our first 
inhabitants, the Indians. 

Cecil County 

Cecil County is the birthplace of 
James Rumsey who invented the first 
steamboat and gave a midnight dem- 
onstration to George Washington just 
one year after the Revolutionary War. 
Rumsey's first principles are still be- 
ing used by the British and United 
States navies in their high-powered 
boats. Boston claims this credit for 
Fitch. Pennsylvania and New York give 
the honor to Robert Fulton, who pro- 
ceeded with Rumney's invention after 
that worthy gentleman collapsed and 
died in London from overwork. 

Cecil County was called the "Bel- 
gium of the Revolutionary War." When

Salisbury. Maryland, is at almost the very center of a long and large Peninsula lying between the 
Chesapeake Hay on the West and the Atlantic Ocean on the East. This area is variously referred to 
as The Eastern Shore. Del-Mar-Va and the Delmarva Peninsula. 

The term Eastern Shore stems from the fact that the Chesapeake Bay divides Maryland into two 
parts nine of the Maryland counties being East of the Hay and fourteen. West thereof. 

the Elk River was navigable to the 
"Head of Elk," the first name for Elk- 
ton, both British and American troops 
used this short cut going either north 
or south and bitterly impoverished it. 
When the river dried up at its source, 
Cecil County was progressive enough 
to build the first canal in America, 
1783, connecting the still deep portion 
of the Elk River with the Delaware. 

Kent County 

Kent County is full to overflowing 
with points of historical interest. It 
has many developed resorts. It is 
rather thrilling to ride over Tench 
Tilghman's famous route, starting near 
Rock Hall, where he carried so vali- 
antly the news of the victory of York- 
town, a more precarious journey than 
Paul Revere's. 

Resorts Not Dressy 

Eastern Shore resorts are not dressy. 
Lacking the smart well-kept look of 
northern playgrounds, you must not 
pay a casual visit but come and stay 
awhile before passing judgment. As 
one enthusiastic visitor said, "I would 
not have the Shore modernized. It 
would lose its old world charm. My 
happy boyhood recollections return so 
vividly each time I find the simplicity 
and naturalness of the Eastern Shore 
unmarred by overcommercialization." 

Kent County is not to be confused 
with the Isle of Kent, now a part of 
Queen Anne's County and settled by 
William Claiborne in 1631. The excel- 
lent ferryboats from Sandy Point on 
the Western Shore land here, at Mata-

That's Cambridge, halfway down the well-known Eastern Shore Peninsula. 16 miles from the 
Chesapeake Bay and not too far from the Atlantic Ocean, spread out on the south shore of the great 
Choptank River. 

At this point the River is two miles wide. Cambridge Creek divides the city into an east and 
west section. It also provides a natural, deep harbor with excellent facilities for shipping and con- 
nections with railroad and trucking stations.

The Miles River Regatta is a notable 
event the first week end in August in 
Talbot County each year. The Club 
plays host to hundreds of yachtsmen 
and thousands of spectators, a majoi 
portion of whom come back year after 
year. The regatta was discontinued 
during the war years. Now it has been 
revived and is more spectacular than

Cambridge, in Dorchester County, 
is one of the most beautiful towns on 
the Eastern Shore. The Cambridge 
Yacht Club here was built in 1939. 
Fifty miles of unnecessary traveling 
have been eliminated by the handsome 
bridge connecting Dorchester with Tal- 
bot. This bridge, built in 1935, has 
been a great boon to both counties. 


Wicomico was the only county 
formed after the Revolutionary War, 
(1867). The town of Salisbury was 
built on the oldest crossroads. This 
Indian name means "Place of Homes." 

Space does not permit enumerating 
all of the delightful vacationing fea- 
tures available to guests. 

The people of the Eastern Shore are 
not interested in exploiting themselves 
or their land. If you come to their 
shores and like it, they are pleased. If 
you go away disgruntled at their lack 
of frills, their total indifference to em- 
bellishments and ballyhoo, they shrug 
their shoulders and do not beg for your 
patronage. If people or places are too 
highly polished, you've got to look un- 
der the surface to make sure they're 
real. Get below the surface of Eastern 
Shore folk if you would enjoy their 
lavish hospitality. After you have 
basked in the tropical air and sunshine, 
imbibed of food fit for the gods, pie- 
pared a la Maryland, and viewed with 
awe the miracle of Nature's sunrises 
and sunsets over the abundant waters, 
then you will be refreshed and revived 
once more mentally and physically. 
You can fill your soul with the Old World 
atmosphere where our forefathers 
established religious freedom, tolerance 


and friendliness. You can learn again 
about gracious living if you come to 
"Ye Okie Eastern Shore" of Maryland. 

Holiday magazine, in a long feature 
article on Maryland likened the East- 
ern Shore to Long Island in its rela- 
tionship to the remainder of the state. 

Russell Lord, a Harford County resi- 
dent, was the author of the 36-page, 
elaborately illustrated article which 
took the leader on a circuitous Cook's 
tour of Maryland, touching points of in- 
terest here and there, painted a pic- 
ture of the Old Line State as one of 
the Nation's outstanding tourist areas. 

"The Eastern Shore has always been 
different," noted the writer, "and has 
always let its difference be known. 
Next to vegetables, seafood, canning, 
and packing, real estate is its one big 
fairly steady business, with shoreline 
property generally valued from $1,000 
an acre up. 

"Of Maryland's twenty-three coun- 
ties, the Eastern Shore's nine contain 
about one-third of the state's area and 
one-tenth of its people; but the fame 
of the region as a place of easy and 
gentle living goes far beyond those 
proportions. Three times out of five, 
I estimate, when persons from afar 
learn that you come from Maryland, 
they will ask you to tell them first 
about the Eastern Shore," Mr. Lord 

The author went on to point out that 
"The Sho' (so its people call it, as if 
there were not others) bears much the 
same glancing relation to all of Mary- 
land as Long Island bears to New York 
State; it is a part of Maryland and yet, 
a world apart. 

"Off the beaten track of commerce 
and traffic, comparatively isolated, it is 
a spacious near-island of retreat, an 
island to which one flees over a solid 
of land. The people there live almost 
out of this world and like it. Else- 
where, the Eastern Shoreman will 
grant you, with an amiable show of 
toleration, there doubtless are other 
worlds, and other people may find them 
exciting; but here is peace," Mr. Lord 


The Progress Club of College Park 
held its Biennial Antique and Hobby 
Show in the University of Maryland 
Coliseum. This show, initiated four 
years ago, has grown into a spring 
event participated in by dealers, clubs 
and individuals from the entire Wash- 
ington area. 

Exhibits included antiques, silver, 
glassware, brass, lamps, jewelry, fur- 
niture, and collections of semi-precious 
gems, coins, old bells, Tobey Jugs, dolls 
of all countries in costume, ceramic 
articles, buttons, stamps, and weaving 
and leather work. 

A Flower Mart displayed house 
plants, bedding plants, shrubbery, wild 
flower panels of real blooms and col- 
ored prints, garden supplies, and even 
movies of plant varieties. 

A Food Room featured home-made 
turkey, beef and ham sandwiches,

ficials, figures to be prejudiced in fa- 
vor of their own teams. This, it is 
alleged, is particularly true in events the 
scoring of which is strictly a matter of 
observation and judgment. 

Miller, Krouse and Millikan were 
asked to act as judges to pick a Queen 
for the freshman prom. Less hardy 
souls might have ducked the assign- 
ment, but these three emulated the ter- 
rapin by sticking their necks out.* 

Twenty-three outstandingly attrac- 
tive girls reported to the judges. Every 
one of the twenty-three were sufficient- 
ly beautiful to be selected. 

The three coaches asked each other, 
"How'll we go about this? We can 
become involved in a rhubarb that 
might last for hours." Finally, they 
agreed that they'd each vote secretly, 
grading the young ladies like a track 
and field event, 5 for first choice, 3 for 
second, 1 for third, with a fourth added 
for good measure. 

Believe it or not, when the three 
score cards were compared they show- 
ed the 1, 2, 3 and 4 choices to be unani- 
mous. They chose the young lady pic- 
tured at the right.

Karhara "Timmy" Simons, pictured above, 
was established as queen of the Freshman Prom 
with a crown of white carnations by Lowell 
Glazer, class president. 

Miss Simons, a freshman in A&S, represented 
Delia Gamma sorority and was escorted to the 
dance by Ron Winterrowd. 


Amy R. Berger. of Roseville, N. J., Junior 
in Education, who was crowned as 1951's "Miss 
Maryland" before a crowd of more than 2,000 
at the annual Junior class Promenade. 

Last year at the sophomore prom Amy was 
named sophomore queen. She was also Delta 
Sigma Phi's candidate for their national dream 

Jim Berryman, cartoonist for The Washing- 
ton Evening Star, chose Amy's picture from all 
those submitted by campus sororities, as winner 
of the "Miss Maryland" contest. Berryman 
might be even more sure that his choice was 
correct if he met petite Amy. She is 20 years 
old, 5 feet 1 inch, weighs 100 lbs. and has blue 
eyes and blonde hair. 

"Miss Maryland" is a native of Newark, New 
Jersey and attended Bloomfield High School. Her 
father, William A. Berger, graduated at Col- 
lege Park in 1925 and from the School of 
Medicine in 1929. 

A major in Nursery School Education, Amy 
plans to teach after graduation and to make her 
home in New England. 

One of Amy's pet interests at the moment is 
her new job as a sponsor for the R.O.T.C. She 
is one of the coeds who will lend a feminine 
hand to future R.O.T.C. activities. 

The traditional Junior-Senior event, which 
was held in the University Armory, featured 
Charlie Barnet as top orchestral attraction, 
with Jack Morton as an alternating band.

Cotte r of SPECIAL and 

Maryland in Heidelberg 

By Dr. A. E. Trucker 

«N a hot Friday afternoon in 619 
A.D., Mohammed was preaching 
in the market place of Medina. Since 
his hearers seemed a bit lethargic he 
decided that it would be well to elec- 
trify them by means of a miracle. Re- 
calling the Biblical phrase about faith 
moving mountains, he called on a 
neighboring mountain to come to him. 
Unfortunately the mountain did not 
move. After a pain- 
fully embarrassing 
pause, the prophet 
said, "It appears the 
mountain does not 
wish to take the trou- 
ble. Let us therefore 
be broadminded! If 
the mountain will not 
come to us, let us go 
to him." 

Vaguely analogous 
is the action of the 
University of Mary- 
land. There are in Europe thousands 
of officers and enlisted men whose as- 
signments make it impossible for them 
to attend an American university, and, 
therefore, Maryland has brought the 
university to them. Men in the Army 
or the Air Force who in many cases 
volunteered just after finishing high
